1) OCTN Peer-Sharing Session
Date: Thurs. Nov. 22, 2018 – 1:30-2:30pm (EST)
Description: Community Transportation (CT) in Ontario and across Canada is currently being affected by a lot of change within several different contexts (e.g., economic, technological, political, etc.). This session will provide OCTN members, and others working in and around community transportation, with the opportunity to network and share information, strategies and/or opportunities being employed so as to continue to move initiatives forward, in spite of changing circumstances.
This peer-sharing session will kick-off a 3-part webinar series on the theme of Addressing CT within Current Contexts. The second session will focus on technology, and the third session will be a follow-up to the OCTN In-person Forum being held in Cobourg on Dec. 5th (see below for more information on these other sessions).

2) The Impact of Technological Advances on Community Transportation
Date: Wed. Nov. 28, 2018 – 1-2pm (EST)
Description: Transportation in our communities is changing, as new ride services such as Uber are expanding, and vehicle connectivity and automation is rapidly developing. These new technologies promise both opportunity and unique new risks. Autonomous vehicles and other transportation developments could reduce traffic, help solve parking challenges, and improve mobility for those who need it. But they could also cause new problems. The results we get will depend on choices communities make now before these technologies arrive.
In this webinar David Thurlow, of the consulting group Harmonize Mobility, will deliver an overview of the new transportation technologies headed for our towns & cities and discuss ideas for how these might be integrated in ways that benefit both urban & rural communities. Discover what has been learned from pilot projects in other areas, and consider regulatory options that put your municipality in the driver’s seat.
