Workshop: Transit Stops: Locating and Designing for Safety

We are experiencing a shift in demand for pedestrian and bicycle facilities in our communities. Municipalities are supporting modal choices by committing to increase transit, active transportation and accessible facilities into their transportation systems. The implementation of active transportation amenities (i.e. bike lanes, shared use paths, and mid_block crossings) increases the complexity of interactions between road and transit users. There are opportunities to minimize conflicts and collision risk while promoting urban mobility by our choice of locations and design.

Transit Awareness Days a success in Ottawa

It’s a critical time for transit in Canada. Unprecedented investments in urban mobility are being made across the country, a new minister of infrastructure has been appointed, and each day brings us closer to the 2019 federal election. As MPs, senators and key stakeholders began a busy fall sitting of Parliament, the Canadian urban transit industry came together on Parliament Hill and spoke with a single voice on issues important to the mobility and sustainability of Canadian communities.
