Each day, 184,000 Greater Toronto and Hamilton (GTHA)-area students feel the challenges of getting around the city.

The Keele, Mississauga and Scarborough campuses of York and University of Toronto have been expanding as fast as the burgeoning residential communities that surround them. At the same time, the central locations of OCAD U, Ryerson, and the University of Toronto’s St. George campus have been drawing even more students from the far reaches of the GTHA. The decentralization of population and higher education has created a new geography of unmet challenges regarding transportation equity in the region. But the current infrastructure – whether you’re traveling by car, bike or public transit – are not always sufficient. Transportation policies and data are not currently responsive to the unique needs of students.

Part of the reason is that we need better data, and a better conversation. That’s where StudentMoveTO comes in. Transportation experts at the four universities have worked together to create an online survey that, for the first time,  yielded systematic insights into post-secondary student travel behaviour, patterns and needs across the GTHA.

Universities and planning authorities can work together to solve some of these issues now that we have the evidence. They can incorporate it into planning processes and urban planning.
