Location: Council Chamber, Toronto City Hall 100 Queen Street West
Together we can fix this.
Join us on September 21st for an interactive symposium on the challenging transportation issues facing students in the Greater Toronto Hamilton Area (GTHA). The presidents of Toronto’s universities, along with policy leaders and students, will discuss the difficult and sometimes bewildering obstacles students confront when travelling in the GTHA.
What issues do students face in getting around the region? What ideas and aspirations do they have for improving mobility in the future? What are the views of leading transportation experts and university presidents? Because student-specific data are scarce, student transportation needs are not always considered in transportation policy decisions. To help correct this, we will also be launching a new student travel behaviour survey, one of the largest such surveys ever conducted. We anticipate an eventful evening and we hope you can join us.
