Even when the road is uncertain, stay on track with the latest transit initiatives shaping Canadian cities. Putting safety, customer usage and investments at the forefront, the virtual 6th Annual Urban Transit Infrastructure National Symposium unites transit leaders from across the country and beyond to discuss hot-button issues and trends that are supporting and disrupting the industry.

Four DIALOGers will be aboard to share insights from their project experience and discuss the future of transit.
