It is through the collaborative relationships that we build with one another that we transform challenges into opportunities.

Next Meeting: Thursday February 2, 2023

The February meeting will be hosted by TMTA Waterloo. The TMTA Executive is planning to have an informal meeting based around the changes that are happening in our industry. Mark Heuston will have a small presentation about the role the transportation industries play in decarbonization and what legislation/technologies are in place and coming in the future.

We would also like to ask a few questions of the membership. Your input at the meeting is essential and we would like you to review the following and bring your input! If you prefer to write down your questions or insight into any subject and bring it to the meeting any executive member would be happy to share your views and information. Please remember that there are no stupid questions and all of your input can be beneficial to the membership. The questions below are guidelines only, we welcome all of your questions. If they cannot be answered there will be someone who knows someone who can get you the answers. Let’s get talking!

First question, how do we prepare for the effects of low emissions vehicles on our daily routines, facility and staff education?

Second, with the recent notice that the P485 chip used in all ABS ECUs will be discontinued within 3 years and no replacement has been fitted, tested or proven, how can we keep our current vehicles in service? How will this affect future vehicle availability that is already strained and costs escalating?

Thirdly, with parts shortages currently being experienced, how have you changed your strategy for acquiring supplies and does this change your maintenance practices?

There are thousands of children throughout Waterloo Region ,who struggle through each weekend without food.

Help fight severe food insecurity in our community! When kids leave school for the weekend, they should not have to worry about how they will be fed.
