Other findings …

Some additional statistical analyses performed are not presented in this article. One of them showed that public transit users were neither more nor less satisfied with their commutes, no matter which census metropolitan area (CMA) they lived in. In other words, public transport users in the CMA of Montréal (for example) were no more unhappy or less unhappy with their commutes than public transport users in Toronto, Vancouver or Ottawa (and vice versa).

Another analysis showed that bus riders (i.e., people who spent most of their commute on the bus) were no more likely to enjoy commuting than those who took the metro and/or the train to work. Unfortunately, it was not possible to separate suburban train passengers from metro riders.

In a third analysis, drivers who commuted alone were compared with people who car-pooled. The results showed that those who drove alone were neither more nor less likely to enjoy commuting than car-poolers.
