The Canadian Urban Transit Research & Innovation Consortium (CUTRIC) was incorporated in August 2014 with the financial support from the not-for-profit organization Canadian Urban Transit Association (CUTA). CUTRIC's objective is to support industry-academic collaborations in the development of the next generation of technologies for Canadian transit and transportation systems.

These advancements will help drive forward innovation in transportation across Canada, leading to job growth and economic development. They will also lead to innovative solutions to decrease fuel consumption, reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions, avoid wasted assets, and eliminate redundancies in operations, thereby saving taxpayers' money while supporting entrepreneurial opportunities for Canadian innovators.
