Service Design Network Canada: The First Annual Toronto Transit Service Safari

Service Design Network Toronto Service Safari

Love it or loathe it, transit is on everyone’s mind.

On March 10, at 6 p.m. take part in the first annual Toronto Transit Service Safari, an event especially designed for design lovers, transit enthusiasts, and anyone who’s just curious about how service design can improve transit service in the city.

Under the guidance of a senior service designer, we’ll navigate Toronto transit, and record the highs and lows of our experience using service design tools. Once you arrive at the final destination, you can kickback, have a drink, and discuss what you’ve learned with other participants.

How it’ll work:

  1. Arrive at any one of the three departure locations (see below), and look for guides holding Transit Safari Signs.
  2. Follow your guide (they’ll already have a route in mind).
  3. Document what you hear, see, and think as you navigate the service using the special template provided.
  4. Tweet, post and chat along the way using #sdnCanada
  5. Arrive at the final destination to debate, discuss and drink.

The Safari departs from three locations in the downtown core:

  1. Queens Park (Meet at street level, north-west corner Wellesley and Bay)
  2. Liberty Village (Meet at street level, north-west corner of King and Dufferin)
  3. Uptown (Meet in front of the Yonge and St. Clair library)
