Toronto City Hall: September 21, 2015
On September 21, 2015, the 4 universities and PI/co-applicants in this proposed research program partnered in organizing a transportation symposium, which took place at Toronto City Hall. The event attracted more than 250 students, in addition to many academics and professionals working in the GTHA region (Figure 4). The symposium featured a student-led panel represented by all participating universities, that focused on the transportation experience of students. Responses to the panel came from policymakers in the GTHA, including high-rank officials from the Regional Municipality of York, Metrolinx, and the Toronto Transit Commission (TTC). In addition to the student-led panel, several researchers (applicants for this proposal), including Siemiatyki, Mitra and Keil, spoke at the event.
