CUTA promotes national transit strategy

Posted on October 18, 2007

The Canadian Urban Transit Association (CUTA) has released a paper called “Background for Discussions Regarding the Development of a Transit Strategy for Canada,” in response to questions posed by the Canadian Ministry of Transport’s Infrastructure and Communities branch.  

Highlighted in CUTA's response was the urgent need for a collective commitment by all orders of government. It believes this can be achieved by starting with a shared vision, commonly held principles and a recognition of mutual benefits, as represented by the five key recommendations in the National Transit Strategy document prepared by the Big City Mayors' Caucus of the Federation of Canadian Municipalities.  

That strategy aims to increase transit ridership, improve the economic competitiveness of Canadian cities, enhance the quality of urban life, and reduce greenhouse gas emissions and improve air quality by proposing dedicated new investment; measures to build demand; integrated land use and transportation planning; innovative research and accountability.
