Putting the Customer at the Heart of Transit
In partnership with Metrolinx and the TTC, CUTA will host its annual conference in Toronto from November 18 to 21, 2018. The conference will link CUTA's members and stakeholders to industry trends, information sharing and networking opportunities with a special focus on the theme Putting the Customer at the Heart of Transit. This conference is held in conjunction with the Canadian Transit Show.
The program is designed to appeal to a broad range of transit professionals, from senior leadership teams to operational and maintenance supervisors. During this conference, CUTA will also present its annual awards for both corporate excellence and individual leadership in the transit industry.
