Smart Mobility Summit

Transport Futures - Smart Mobility Summit

With transportation planning and financing becoming more complex due to technological, social and political factors, Transport Futures held the Smart Mobility Summit on December 3, 2018. The interactive agenda saw more than 100 delegates learn about British, Swedish and American city regions that are managing and integrating roads, transit, car/bike/scooter sharing, goods movement, automated vehicles, mobility pricing, big data and general funding in their transportation plans. A panel of Canadian experts applied lessons from the international case studies to the Ontario context and discussed how the public and private sector can prepare for a customer-oriented, multi-modal future looking out to 2028. CBC Toronto News, NRU and the Daily Commercial News reported on different aspects of the event.

Based on 38 delegate evaluations received, 84% said the Smart Mobility Summit met or surpassed their expectations. Here are a few testimonials:
  • The Summit provided a great forum for idea exchange and international concepts/case studies and how their lessons can be implemented in Toronto. 
  • Introduced me to a totally new realm of transportation technology, including potential benefits and problems. Excellent range of speakers relating to places of origin and category of expertise. 
  • The agenda was well structured. The presenters were engaging and thought provoking. The pace of the agenda was great. 
  • Great food! Conference overall was very interesting and good discussion. I was pleased to see a few women panellists and discussants. 
  • Always a great 1-day session and much better than larger association conferences on transit/transportation I've attended. Well done and organized! 
  • Thank you for a great summit. A lot of work went into this and it made for an exceptional learning experience.
