February 2009 (preliminary) (Previous release)

Combined ridership and revenue levels for 10 of Canada's largest urban transit properties decreased in February 2009 compared with the same month last year.

These 10 companies represent about 80% of total urban transit across the country.

Ridership levels fell 3.4% to 116.5 million passenger trips in February 2009 from February 2008 levels.

The decrease in ridership pulled revenue (excluding subsidies) down 1.1% from February 2008 to $197.6 million.

Both decreases in ridership and revenue were influenced by a labour-management dispute involving an urban transit provider.
