The latest news in transportation is always zooming along at break-neck speeds. With new advancements coming quickly on the heels of the last, it’s hard to keep up with all the new concepts, new developments, and new products as they are released for public consumption.

Add Auto/Transport News to your site with our free widget - email cld@cision.comFrom the popularization of electric vehicles to changes in the trucking industry, there is a wide range of topics that fold into auto and transportation news. It often needs to be broken down into smaller sections just to allow journalists to dive far enough into each niche of the industry.

In that spirit, there are a great many sites that focus on a specific segment of the transportation industry and keep readers up to date with all of the best tidbits, tricks, and triumphs, sifting through a load of information to bring us the top stories for our information, our entertainment, and our wonderment.

While our regular news site roundups focus on US-based sites, we’re heading north for this edition and shining a spotlight on several auto news sites offering the latest updates for Canadian readers – but the stories can be relevant beyond the country’s borders. Here are some of our favorite sites that are keeping readers updated on all of the comings and goings of this exciting sector.

1. Popular Science

Popular Science is a delightful accumulation of news stories, analytical pieces, and DIY tutorials. Since launching in 1872, PopSci, as it is commonly called, has transformed from humble scientific origins to a bastion of accessible knowledge and opinion with the mission to unpack science and make it easy for everyone.

While PopSci has a phenomenal collection of articles on a very wide variety of STEM topics, the vehicles page is packed full with all the latest news on concept cars, electric vehicles, hybrid technology, and discussions of self-driving vehicles. This makes PopSci a phenomenal resource for the latest transportation trends. Just be sure to give yourself some time to really explore this treasure trove.
