Stay on track with the latest transit ideas and initiatives shaping Canadian cities.

The 6th Annual Urban Transit Infrastructure Forum unites transit leaders from across the country and beyond to discuss hot-button issues and trends that are supporting and disrupting the industry.

As Canada’s population continues to climb at a steady pace, transit networks in urban areas are struggling to keep up. Fueled by a surge of government investments in recent years, the focus is on building, expanding and maintaining these systems to meet the growing demand for service.

Get direct access to key market players involved in the procurement, design, construction and operation of major transit projects and empower yourself through a wealth of knowledge straight from the experts. Don’t miss this opportunity to join the conversation to ensure you’re planning and building for a future that’s fast approaching.
