About us

Mobility Network is a network of mobility researchers from across University of Toronto, committed to seeing that in this “First Urban Century,” mobility must enable all people to achieve their potential while protecting our planet.

Mobility Network is 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.

We will be asking the questions, sharing our knowledge, learning from our partners, considering the issues from diverse perspectives, hosting the conversations and finding the way to address the global challenge for cities to evolve into more sustainable, equitable, and resilient urban forms and mobility systems.

Please join us on the journey.

Mobility Network is an Institutional Strategic Initiative (ISI) at the University of Toronto.

Knowledge Clusters

Mobility Network embraces “radical interdisciplinarity” that leverages the scale, scope, and strengths of a multidisciplinary, collaborative network of researchers across U of T’s campuses.

Overlapping Knowledge Clusters span the range of factors critical to mobility while collaboration among researchers will unify our mission.

Mobility Network will build a broad, strong, engaged network of U of T researchers, organized in overlapping Knowledge Clusters that address global challenges in a time of disruptive change.

People

Mobility Network is the “big tent” in which mobility researchers from across U of T’s three campuses – in civil, industrial, electrical, chemical, mechanical and aerospace engineering, in anthropology, architecture, economics, geography, management, public health, sociology and urban planning, and, in computer science and political science – will gather.
