Mobility Network is an Institutional Strategic Initiative at the University of Toronto that convenes mobility researchers as well as partners in the community, industry and government, to find mobility solutions that serve people’s well-being, the planet’s future, and the potential of our growing cities to flourish equitably, sustainably and productively.

With its exceptional disciplinary breadth and depth that, collectively, addresses equity, climate, technology, land use planning, goods movement, travel behaviour and governance, U of T is uniquely positioned to catalyze transformation in the ways mobility is achieved and to make U of T a global leader in transportation research.

This presentation introduces Mobility Network and describes opportunities to become involved in its activities.
