Mobility Pricing Stakeholder Forum
Metropolitan Hotel, Toronto -- Tuesday, November 22, 2011
Thanks to more than 100 delegates, sponsors and speakers who attended the Transport Futures “Mobility Pricing Stakeholder Forum” on November 22nd -- our sixth conference in 3 years. They told us that the Forum met their expectations and almost 80% said it was excellent value for money. A few compliments we received:
- “A valuable conference with a high concentration of learning.”
- “Good, focussed discussion.”
- “Price point is good - affordable and reasonable. Content and speakers well-sourced.”
- “Best conference yet!”
For those unable to attend in person, Transport Futures generated some great media coverage:
- Canada lags in use of toll roads - Transport Futures founder Martin Collier interviewed by CBC Online News
- Toll Roads? - Transport Futures speaker Jens Shade interviewed on CBC Radio “Metro Morning”
- Will drivers embrace tolls? Not likely - Transport Futures stakeholder panelist Royson James' assessment.
- Can incentives get people out of their cars? - Transport Futures speakers Michael Fenn and Jens Schade quoted in Toronto Star
- For and against: road taxes inspire heated debate - Road pricing analysis in Toronto Star “Wheels” section with reference to Transport Futures speaker Kurt Van Dender’s research.
- Does Canada need more road tolls? - Martin Collier interviewed by The Mark for Toronto Star’s “Great Futures” multi-media weekly.

Looking forward to 2012, we are now planning for Transport Futures community workshops that replicate our hotel proceedings. There will also be two mobility pricing conferences -- one on goods movement and another on governance. Please contact us if you’d like to become involved as a partner, advisor or participant in any of these initiatives -- or have any other feedback to provide. We look forward to hearing from you!
