Administrative history

The Canadian Institute of Guided Ground Transport was established in 1970 under the jurisdiction of Queen's University, and with the strong participation and support of the Canadian Transport Commission, Canadian National and Canadian Pacific. The aims of the Institute were "to provide integrated interdisciplinary research to meet the long-term needs of Canadian guided ground transportation, and to increase the supply of graduates who have knowledge of and interest in transportation systems." All members of the Institute formed the Council. In 1973, the Board membership consisted of the Executive Director; three members not affiliated with the Institute as appointed by University Senate; three from the Council, one of whom was elected, and two of whom were to be University staff selected by the Principal; and one each appointed by the Government of Canada, Canadian National and Canadian Pacific.
The Institute ceased operations in 1994.
