Cooperative Truck Platooning Pilot Program

Cooperative platooning is when a number of trucks or other vehicles equipped with driving support systems and vehicle-to-vehicle communications are driven together as a grouping of vehicles. The technology has the potential to improve traffic flows while driving economic growth and investment.

Connected Vehicle technology is advancing quickly, and Ontario's goal is to be a leader in the advancement, deployment and adoption of innovative connected and automated vehicle technologies. On January 1, 2019 Ontario launched a pilot program to allow the testing of cooperative truck platooning with a driver present in each vehicle, under specific conditions, along specified routes.
