Who We Are

Bringing Change to the Zero Emission Transit Industry

The Canadian Urban Transit Research and Innovation Consortium (CUTRIC) is Canada’s non-profit leader in technological and financial knowledge, innovation, and consulting with regard to decarbonized and autonomous public transit systems. 

CUTRIC supports the design, development and commercialization of technologies through industry-led collaborative research, development, demonstration and integration (RDD&I) projects. 

CUTRIC brings innovative design concepts to Canada’s low-carbon smart mobility ecosystem, including zero and low emissions propulsion technologies and systems integration, smart vehicles and smart infrastructure technologies, big data for mobility analytics and cybersecurity to advance mobility applications.

As a member-owned, non-profit technology consortium, CUTRIC has supported dozens of Canadian and American public transit agencies in preparing their systems for electrification. CUTRIC is proudly recognized as the Government of Canada’s Zero-Emission Transit Funder National Planning Service, supporting public transit agencies in decarbonizing their fleets.

Our Vision

We strive to make Canada a global leader in low-carbon smart mobility technologies across heavy-duty and light-duty platforms, including advanced transit, transportation, and integrated mobility applications.

Our Mission

Our mission is to support the commercialization of technologies through industry-led collaborative research, development, demonstration, and integration (RDD&I) projects that bring innovative design to Canada’s low-carbon smart mobility eco-system.
