CUTA Spring Symposium 2019

May 14, 2019 to May 16, 2019


CUTA Technology in Transit Symposium 2019 – St. John's NFLD

20 years ago, it was said that digital technology was changing our world faster than ever before. Today it wouldn’t be far fetched to say that our world is defined by technology and that few in Canada could imagine life without it.  From everyday items like ATMs and cell phones – which were radical and controversial when introduced – to AI-driven algorithms that determine what newsfeed you see, technology is inescapable.

In the transit world, it’s crucial for transit agencies to be able to sift through the staggering array of technological options available and to determine which are genuine solutions and which are solutions in search of a problem.

At the Technology in Transit Symposium in St. John’s, we will unpack the latest in cutting-edge technology. These are some of the topics we’ll be covering:

  • How AI will improve system operations.
  • Using big data to attract riders.
  • Smart payment systems: what you need to know.
  • How technology drives new mobility.

In the backdrop of one of North America’s oldest cities, come and learn about the latest in software that can learn on its own and predict the behaviour of its users. Hear how technology can lead to operational efficiencies, drive customer satisfaction, reduce overhead, and in many ways pay for itself while doing so.

This event will run from Tuesday, May 14 to Thursday, May 16 in St. John’s, Newfoundland, and is being graciously hosted by Metrobus and the St. John’s Transportation Commission.
