***TAAG LAUNCHES ONLINE WEBINAR SERIES***
Monday, February 8th, 2021
The Transit Action Alliance of Guelph (TAAG) is pleased to announce the launch of our “Learn about Transit” webinars series.
These webinars will run roughly each month and cover various transit topics from how bus routes are planned, On Demand Transit (aka microtransit), to transit oriented development.
Our first “Learn about Transit” webinar will be about On Demand Transit with guest speaker Paul Buck, Manager of Transit Operations for Belleville Transit.
Paul has more than 20 years’ experience in Transit Operations in both the Municipal and Private sector. He has worked on many transit projects including Bus Rapid Transit launches, Mobile Fare Payment, New Facilities start-ups and CAD/AVL launches.
In September 2018 Belleville Transit teamed up with Pantonium Inc. to launch a conventional transit on demand program that has gone on to be a resounding success. In November 2019 Belleville Transit and Pantonium were awarded the Canadian Urban Transit Association (CUTA) Corporate Leadership Award for Innovation in Transit for the On Demand Project.
The event is free; however, donations are also welcomed. The online webinar will be held on Tuesday, February 16th, 2021 at 7:00p.m. To register for the event, please go to taaguelph.com/events and click on the “Learn About Transit” banner. A weblink will be sent on the day of the event to all those who registered.
