ITE Southwest Ontario Section: Transit/Active Transportation Walking Tour in Kitchener

May 3, 2023@1:00 pm to 5:30 pm EDT


The Southwest Ontario Section of ITE Canada are excited to host our Spring 2023 event!  The City of Kitchener and Region of Waterloo have kindly offered us a guided tour of the updated Downtown Kitchener active transportation and transit infrastructure, followed by a social dinner at Crabby Joe’s.

Have you wondered how we begin to shift to the idea of moving people, not just cars?  Maybe how to improve transit ridership in a developing downtown core?  Join us for an informative walking tour of the recently transformed downtown Kitchener network, especially focusing on:

–       LRT and transit use

–       Pedestrian travel

–       Cycling infrastructure

–       Moving away from auto-centric design

This tour can even help to build a greater knowledge and appreciation for those Transportation Professionals (engineers, technologists, designers, planners) who have not had a chance to work in active transportation and transit.  This is a great opportunity to meet and engage with your peers in the Southwest Ontario Transportation sector.  For those travelling to Kitchener from the west, consider taking the train from your nearest VIA station as it will be possible to travel by train on VIA Rail to Kitchener and then either on GO Transit or on VIA Rail to return home.

Arrival Time:   1:15 pm
