About Us

Established in 2008, Transport Futures is a series of learning events coordinated by Healthy Transport Consulting. Working with our valued advisors, partners, sponsors and speakers, we are the only Ontario-based organization facilitating a rational dialogue on a range of challenging TDM measures and infrastructure funding mechanisms. Since 2015, we've also investigated subway planning, intercity travel and smart mobility. Combining these learning events and debates with effective research and media outreach, Transport Futures has made a solid contribution to the public discourse on transportation planning in Ontario and the rest of Canada.
