CUTA is pleased to host the Transit Policy Forum at UBC Robson Square, Vancouver on September 12, 2019.
The event will feature transit industry executives and urban planning thought leaders who will outline how and why public transportation and integrated mobility are at the heart of city building in Canada. The event will also showcase election candidates from the main federal political parties who will present their party’s platforms on transit and infrastructure development during the writ period.
The majority of Canadians say that road congestion is a problem in their area. Canadians know that using public transit helps reduce traffic congestion, and get them where they need to be quicker. Canadians want governments to prioritize. With more public transit options and better system support, people have more time to do the activities that are important to them. If you’re fed up with congestion we need your support!
Investing in transit employs Canadians both during construction and once transit systems are operating. Good public transit also saves every day Canadians money as it is a cheaper alternative to private transportation. If you’re one of the 9 in 10 Canadians that think governments need to invest more in public transit, then please support our campaign.
Canadians care about the environment and they know that public transit reduces emissions. More accessible, modern public transit options, will help Canada achieve environmental goals. Approximately 80% of Canadians want the government to do more to deploy green buses and invest in public transportation.
