Transit keeps Canadians moving

Public transit empowers communities and keeps us moving. Millions of Canadian rely on public transit every day.

Public transit empowers communities and keeps them moving. And lots has changed since we last met in person. How transit is powered is changing. Covid changed how transit is used. And how transit systems are “empowering” everyone through new diversity, inclusion, and accessibility initiatives is changing, too.

Fortunately, how we’re meeting is also changing. And for the first time in too long, we’ll be connecting face-to-face—with a virtual option, too—at CUTA’s Spring Summit. It’s being held in beautiful, historic Quebec City from April 3-5, 2022.
