CUTA Forum 2017: Route to Innovation

Event Type: 

CUTA is delighted to partner with York Region Transit (YRT) to deliver the transit and urban mobility industry’s most unique event, CUTA Forum 2017: Route to Innovation.

Experience the high-quality networking and programming you’ve come to expect from CUTA conferences with a few innovations to our format.

While this Fall’s event is slightly different than past conferences, CUTA Forum 2017 will offer many features familiar to those who have attended in the past – exciting technical tours, committee Meetings, Board and Executive meetings, CUTA’s Individual Awards Ceremony, a Welcome Reception as well as other learning and networking opportunities.

Because of the shortened format, the Forum is also more affordable than ever, and is designed to appeal to transit professionals from every level of the organization. Register now, early bird ends August 25th, 2017!
