Smart Mobility Summit

Transport Futures - Smart Mobility Summit

Time flies! It is hard to believe that November 2018 marks 10 years since Transport Futures hosted our inaugural learning event. While our original mission was to facilitate a rational, non-partisan and ongoing dialogue pertaining to a range of mobility pricing measures that can decrease traffic congestion and fund sustainable transportation infrastructure, we have since expanded our focus to include public private partnerships, ride hailing, automated vehicles and intercity rail/bus travelWe appreciate your attendance and support! 

With transportation planning and funding becoming more complex due to technological, social and political factors, Transport Futures invites you to attend the Smart Mobility Summit on Monday, December 3. As outlined in our interactive agenda, you’ll learn about British, Swedish and American city regions that are managing and integrating roads, transit, car/bike sharing, goods movement, automated vehicles, mobility pricing and general funding in their transportation plans. This will be followed by a panel of local experts discussing how to apply lessons from the international case studies to the Ontario context and how to prepare for a customer-oriented multi-modal future looking out to 2028. Confirmed speakers include:

  • Edward Reiskin, Director of Transportation, San Francisco Municipal Transportation Authority
  • Gunnar Söderholm, Director, Environment and Health Administration, City of Stockholm
  • Michael Steinberg, Head of Strategy, Programme and Communications, UK Centre for Connected and Autonomous Vehicles
  • Jan Hellåker, Program Director, Drive Sweden
  • Antoine Belaieff, Director, Regional Planning, Innovation & Sustainability, Metrolinx
  • Sue Zielinski, Principal, Zielinski Consulting
  • Anna Robak, Research Manager, Innovation and Future Ready, WSP Canada Group
  • Bern Grush, Co-founder and Chief Innovation Officer, Harmonize Mobility
  • … more experts to be announced soon!
