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.
