On June 9th, the Suburban Mobilities Cluster will have a day within the Mobility Month of the Mobility Network. The Cluster collected data from nearly 2000 Scarborough residents on various topics (mobility, built environment, social capital, political values, and health), and we will present ongoing research using this dataset. The event is a half day (9:30 to 1 pm) in person (GB202, downtown).
The Suburban Mobilities Cluster at the University of Toronto Scarborough is a multi-disciplinary research program that draws on expertise across nine disciplines to tackle four suburban mobility challenges: rising suburban inequalities, improving transportation design and technology, increasing transportation impacts on climate change, emerging stakes on resilience to shocks.
Suburban Mobilities is part of the Mobility Network, a network of partners, in the community, in industry, and in government, who will collaborate to find mobility solutions that serve people’s well-being, the planet’s future, and the potential of our growing cities to flourish equitably, sustainably and productively.
As a pillar of the GTA-RISE institute, the cluster will develop an integrated UTSC approach to collaborative research, while leveraging faculty resources and university institutions across the tri-campus, such as the Mobility Network, The School of Cities, and the University of Toronto Transportation Research Institute.
