Transport Futures – Transportation Equity Summit

The transportation system is supposed to provide universal access to jobs, goods, services and leisure activities. However, Canadians have different incomes, needs and abilities so some gain better access than others. Transport Futures is convening an Equity Summit on December 9 to discuss how transit, rail and road planning can treat everyone fairly.
