Links to ridesharing could boost suburban transit use

Municipal transit services could increase ridership by co-ordinating with, not competing against, commercial ridesharing companies.

Waterloo hackers top the standings in North America

Hackers at the University of Waterloo topped counterparts at more than 2,000 other schools to take first-place honours in a North American league for the popular invention competitions.

The result reflected the fact over 3,200 Waterloo students took part in more than 150 events supported by Major League Hacking (MLH) during the 2017-2018 season and finished in the top three at 30 of them.
