Municipal transit services could increase ridership by co-ordinating with, not competing against, commercial ridesharing companies.
Waterloo Engineering researchers found that transit-ridesharing links in poorly serviced suburban neighbourhoods, where frequent bus service on fixed routes is cost-prohibitive, could help get people out of their cars by making transit more convenient.
Top Waterloo teams at this year’s Ontario Engineering Competition (OEC) will compete against the best from across Canada on campus later this winter.
Waterloo Engineering students placed first and third in both the Innovative Design and Senior Design categories and second in the Junior Design category at OEC held at McMaster University earlier this month. The first and second place teams will move on to compete in the Canadian Engineering Competition (CEC) to be held March 1-3 in Engineering 7.
Canada's current wetland protection efforts have overlooked how the environment naturally protects fresh-water resources from agricultural fertilizer contaminants, engineering researchers from the University of Waterloo's Water Institute have found.
