New Mobility Lab

The New Mobility Lab is our new engagement portal for post-secondary institutions, researchers, and university students.

We provide stable, multi-year funding towards a coordinated program of applied research aimed at answering new mobility related questions of relevance to us and our local government partners.


New Mobility Research Grant Program (NMRG)

This program provides research grants of up to $50,000 to well-defined projects undertaken by B.C. post-secondary researchers and their partners.

NMRG projects may range from one year to two years in duration and can span a range of disciplines, including, engineering, planning and policy, urban design, computer science, environmental and resource science, business, psychology, sociology, and economics.

All projects must relate to a new mobility theme and must have regional or local relevance.


UBC Sustainability Scholars Program

We'll engage up to four UBC Sustainability Scholars on a pilot basis in 2018 to conduct research related to new mobility and other transportation planning topics. The final products from this pilot will be shared on this webpage in 2019.
