Shangeeta Snape, PMP
Canada Transit Lead
As the transit lead for Canada, Shangeeta’s primary mandate is to provide leadership for us in Canadian transit, including finding creative ways to provide client services. She leverages strengths strategically, both internally and externally, and hires the right talent. Since joining us, Shangeeta established Canada’s own rail and transit systems department. She has also expanded transit engineering with new project management and technical expertise.
Shangeeta serves as principal-in-charge overseeing the Toronto Transit Commission Line 2 Capacity Enhancement Program and joint venture between HDR and Gannett Fleming. Shangeeta played a key role in setting up and kicking off the program, adding new project controls, processes and program management capabilities to enhance our service offerings, in addition to providing guidance on the program’s structure to ensure sustainability for the client’s long-term needs. Shangeeta is also the principal-in-charge for two TransLink projects — West Coast Express Facility Upgrades project and Burnaby Transit Centre Master Plan project.
She is passionate about public transportation (trains in particular), sustainability, people management and mentoring, working in a team with dynamic people, as well as learning and gaining new experience. What excites her most is finding new and creative ways to deliver optimal, quality solutions for us, clients and the public.
Major projects she has contributed to include establishing program interface management for the Metrolinx GO Expansion Program and successfully bringing the $400 million complex brownfield, multi-year commuter rail New York Transit Flushing Line Signal Rehabilitation project to final cutover.
Shangeeta is a member of the Toronto Railway Club and the Project Management Institute. Shangeeta holds the post of secretary on the board of directors for the WTS Canadian Educational Foundation. Active in the industry, she presented at the Canadian Urban Transit Research & Innovation Consortium conference in 2020 and 2021.
