Canada’s most comprehensive review and update on urban transit infrastructure

Urbanization and urban sprawl have put unprecedented pressure on municipalities to provide transit solutions for congested cities. Enabled by record-level government funding, transit proponents across Canada are building, expanding and maintaining systems. The large scale, high costs and multi-stakeholders complexity of these projects create many challenges for public and private sector alike.

At the 5th Annual Urban Transit Infrastructure Forum, you will have the opportunity to compare different approaches to transit system delivery. Through updates from current and imminent projects, you can gain insights into how decisions were made and issues resolved.

Practical information will be shared by a spectrum of transit proponents, including project owners, managers, constructors and consultants involved in procurement, design and construction. Peek into a future that includes Mobility-as-a-Service and autonomous vehicles: Thought leaders will outline the challenges, solutions and innovations facing your transit systems as they sit at the crossroads of technology and tradition.

No matter the role you play in transit project delivery, you cannot afford to miss taking away the first-hand experiences and lessons learned from North America’s diverse transit delivery leadership.
