    It is generally assumed that for most workers, commuting is at best a necessary evil, at worst, a daily nightmare. But is that really the case? Using the latest data from the 2005 General Social Survey on time use, this study identifies the main factors associated with a more or less pleasant commute, focusing in particular on the mode of transportation used.

  • Articles and reports: 16-201-X20060009515
    Description:

    Our vast transportation system - roads, railways, airports, ports and vehicles - provides people and businesses with services that are fundamental to our standard of living and well-being.

    At the same time, transportation is a concern to Canadians from an environmental perspective. From greenhouse gas emissions and air pollution from burning fossil fuels to the fragmentation of wildlife habitat by transportation infrastructure, transportation activities impact the environment locally and globally.

    This article examines transportation activity in Canada and its environmental impacts - and the efforts of governments, businesses and citizens to help mitigate them - by painting a statistical portrait of Transportation in Canada.

  • Articles and reports: 89-613-M2005007
    Geography: Canada
    Description:

    The report examined the location of jobs in 27 census metropolitan areas, paying particular attention to developments in Quebec, Montreal, Ottawa-Hull, Toronto, Winnipeg, Calgary, Edmonton and Vancouver. It also analysed the modes commuters used to travel to work, emphasising public transit and car (as driver or passenger) commute modes.

    While Canadian metropolitan areas continue to be characterized by a strong concentration of jobs in the downtown core, employment grew faster in the suburbs of Canada's largest metropolitan areas than in the city centres between 1996 and 2001. One characteristic of increasing employment in suburban locations is the shifting of manufacturing activities from the core of the city to the suburbs. Retail trade also shifted away from the central core towards more suburban locations. Relatively few workers employed outside the city centre commuted on public transit, rather, most drove or were a passenger in a car. This tendency to commute by car increased the farther the job was located from the city centre.

    Furthermore commute patterns have become more complex, with growth in suburb-to-suburb commutes outpacing traditional commute paths within the city centre, and between the city centre and suburbs. Commuters travelling from suburb to suburb were also much more likely to drive than take public transit.

    Despite the decentralization of jobs occurring in the metropolitan areas, public transit did not lose its share of commuters between 1996 and 2001. While more car traffic headed to jobs in the suburbs, a larger share of commuters heading for the city centre took public transit. This kept the total share of commuters who took public transit stable between 1996 and 2001.

    The report also found that jobs in the downtown core were higher skilled and higher paid, and that earnings increased faster for jobs in the city centre between 1996 and 2001.

    The report uses the 1996 and 2001 censuses of Canada.

  • Surveys and statistical programs – Documentation: 50F0001G
    Description:

    Statistics Canada collects and publishes a large amount of data on all modes of transportation. For example, do you know the level of shipments of commodities last quarter? Where are the key access points to the United States and which commodities are moving through them? How can you determine market share? This guide will familiarize you with the sources for answers to these questions and more and show you how to access them. It will allow you to take advantage of what Statistics Canada has to offer you. The guide is divided into two parts. Part I contains a description of each survey at Statistics Canada that has transportation related information. Each survey is listed with the survey name, a person to contact, phone number and fax number, a brief description of the transportation related information in the survey, the periodicity of the survey and the publication catalogue number, name and price where the information can be found.
