Infrastructure Canada Consultation Report Highlights Demand for Transit in Canada

In 2016, CUTA participated in INFRAconsults which is an engagement process led by Infrastructure Canada that offered Canadians the opportunity to comment on their experiences with infrastructure investment. Canadians were invited to participate in an online forum, complete eWorkbooks, and provide written submissions.

Public Transit was front and center in the outcome of the consultations. Over half of respondents chose “better transit, better roads, and electric cars” when asked, “When you think about your community and your country in the next 10, 20, or even 50 years, what does it look like? What kind of infrastructure does it have?”

Transit also scored high as a key tool in helping make communities more green and engaged in green and inniovative technology.

Read the full report to learn more about the Infrastructure Canada consultation, including what types of improvements Canadians would like to see from their transit systems.
