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.

One Small Town Transit’s Experience of Attending the Annual Ontario Transportation Expo: April 2018

By Vickie vanRavenswaay, Pelham Transit - With limited professional development funding, every year it is a challenge to determine which professional development opportunities to attend. Being new to the world of providing transit services for the community, in the past I would determine which sessions would be of benefit and attend this annual conference for a half day. This year I felt it was important to attend the full conference; to take in all the sessions, put faces to colleagues I had only spoken to over the past 2 years, and take advantage of the networking opportunities - which were priceless!

Gas Tax Forum - Speakers & Discussion

Toronto, Innis Town Hall, University of Toronto - Hosted by Transport Futures

July 25, 2018 - 12 noon to 5 pm

Ontario voters have elected a Conservative government which promised to reduce the provincial gas tax by 10 cents: 5.7 cents from the current 14.7 cent excise tax and 4.3 cents from cancelling the Liberal’s Cap-and-Trade Program. Since a tax on gasoline is an essential mobility pricing measure, Transport Futures is holding a special forum to discuss the pros and cons of cutting the gas tax in terms of economics, fiscal policy/infrastructure funding, transportation demand management, environmental/legal implications and politics. Together we’ll create a list of solutions that could help the new government fulfil its mobility, environmental and fiscal objectives.

Seating is limited and early bird rates are in effect until July 11 - To learn more & register, click here.
