What direction do you want Canada's transit to take?

In the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic, mobility patterns are shifting as many workplaces transition to a remote workforce. Canada's public transit services must adapt to continue meeting ridership needs while addressing economic impacts.

SSHRC and Infrastructure Canada have launched a Knowledge Synthesis Grant competition to assess the state of knowledge on mobility and public transit issues. The research findings will inform and guide policy-makers and service providers responsible for public transit at the community level.
