What is Connect Smart?

ConnectSmart challenged the way Nova Scotians think about their daily commute. It explored how communities are envisioning the adoption of new mobility options and services, including shared mobility options, electric vehicles, transit, and active transportation, among others. DalTRAC engaged professionals (planners, urban designers, engineers, etc.), and community groups (cycling advocates, walking and transit groups) in an open dialogue to envision a smart transportation network.

To facilitate engagement, DalTRAC conducted two workshops, a social media campaign and is hosting a website. The website and the social media campaign will continue the conversation on how to plan and prepare for emerging technology-based mobility opportunity.

Our goal is to generate considerable discussion on three themes: Integrated Mobility, Transportation-Land Use-Health Integration and Future Mobility Integrations. We want to enhance the knowledgebase for integrating new transportation technology and mobility options.
