Welcome to the Ontario Community Transportation Network!

Many communities in Ontario lack sufficient transportation options to meet the mobility needs of their residents. As a response, more and more of these communities have developed or are developing community transportation programs.

The Ontario Community Transportation Network has been created to connect individuals and organizations interested in exchanging information, experiences and practices about community transportation services in Ontario. Through this Network you can connect with other communities who have or are in the process of developing community transportation services. The network welcomes all community transportation stakeholders including public transit providers, private sector transportation operators, social and health agencies, community organizations, ride-sharing groups, and transportation technology companies who want to further mobility solutions in their communities.

CUTA Webinar: Carshare and Public Transit – A Match for the Ages

This webinar will take place on Thursday, May 17th, 2018 from 1-2pm (EST). Please click here to register.

The Canadian Urban Transit Association (CUTA), as well as many members of the transit industry, have shifted their focus to integrated urban mobility in the past few years. The Integrated Mobility Implementation Toolbox is a document which provides a variety of mobility solutions for systems and government who are trying to adopt integrated mobility practices through design for movement, transportation demand management (TDM) and mobility management. It was developed out of a need to research and assemble a group of practices that could be implemented by transit systems or municipalities depending on their individual needs and where they are along the spectrum of integrated mobility.

To help you operationalize the Toolbox, CUTA will be hosting a webinar on the relationship between transit and carsharing. Learn from transit, carshare and TDM practitioners how to successfully integrate carshare services in your community. Understand how to link land development approvals and the establishment of partnerships between carshare service providers and your transit agency. Hear how CarShare Atlantic members that are Halifax Transit customers enjoy the freedom of driving a car without the headaches and costs of owning one.

Please contact Lauren Rudko at (416) 365-9800 ext.113 for more information.
