Past Events

On Jan. 7, 2019 we hosted the second annual New Mobility Forum dedicated to shaping the future of automated, connected, electric, and shared mobility in Metro Vancouver.

This year, the forum brought together leaders in government, industry, and academia from Canada and beyond to explore how should we govern our new mobility future and how we should regulate, manage, and deliver transportation in Metro Vancouver and BC to ensure that we're leveraging the potential of automated, connected, electric, and shared mobility while avoiding the pitfalls.

The forum featured:

  • Interactive discussions on governing ride-hailing, automation, and Mobility-as-a-Service in BC.
  • Updates on the Smart Cities Challenge bids.
  • Report out on the outcomes of our inaugural Open Innovation Call and announce the theme for the next call.

On June 28, 2018, TransLink and PIBC South Coast Chapter are hosted a discussion panel on bike sharing in the Metro Vancouver region. Speakers from Mobi, SFU, TransLink, and U-bicycle will talk about progress, challenges, and opportunities for growing bike share.

On June 13, 2018 the Canadian Urban Transit Association (CUTA), in partnership with TransLink as the local host, held the New Mobility Symposium in Richmond, BC. The symposium provided an opportunity for New Mobility leaders and professionals from across North America and internationally to share the latest developments in urban mobility. It also served as a unique educational experience for planners, transit leaders, and municipal leaders who are considering the role of transportation network companies in their cities, and looking for ways to work together to meet their objectives and those of their stakeholders.

In Feb. 2018, the City of New Westminster held their annual Innovation Week, in partnership with TransLink around the theme of transportation.

In addition to supporting a transportation-data hackathon, a technology business networking event, and a public lecture, TransLink worked with New Westminster to support a full-day Transportation Forum aimed at professionals, elected-officials, and engaged members of the community.

The Transportation Forum was focused on three key areas: automated vehicles, electric vehicles, and open data.

On Dec. 4, 2017 TransLink hosted the inaugural New Mobility Forum in Metro Vancouver. This event brought together provincial, regional and municipal government officials, academia, and the businesses and entrepreneurs delivering many of the New Mobility services in the region and beyond. The aim of this ongoing Forum is to build the relationships, consensus and trust necessary to channel the technology-driven disruption happening in the transportation sector today towards building communities that are sustainable, livable, and just.
