Future of Urban Transportation – Cross Canada Perspectives

With ever-more serious environmental concerns about emissions, combined with the advent of electrified vehicles, ride sharing, vehicle sharing and the advances in connected and autonomous vehicles, it is predicted that surface transportation is about to go through a major Renaissance.

ITS Canada, in conjunction with Metro Vancouver, is hosting a 3-city symposium from March 8-11 in Canada.  The topic is Urban Mobility and the Future of Urban Transportation and will be of keen interest to most urban developers, architects, planners and constructors. Explore these predicted changes and help cities, regional districts, urban planners and other key stakeholders better prepare for this dramatic future.
