MOVE: The Transportation Expo
At an average of 80 minutes per day, Toronto has one of the worst commute times in the world. And it’s getting worse. Currently home to over six million people, the Greater Toronto and Hamilton Area (GTHA) is expected to grow to almost 9 million people by 2031—that means 3 million more people vying for space on already clogged highways and packed transit vehicles.

Set amid the spectacular heritage Kilns building of Evergreen Brick Works, the MOVE Expo explores solutions to the key transportation issues facing us today, here in Toronto and in cities around the world. Visit http://ebw.evergreen.ca/move/
