Fast Cities—A comparison of rapid transit in major Canadian cities
Fast Cities—A comparison of rapid transit in major Canadian cities (summary report): Investing in transit infrastructure is essential to relieve gridlock in Canada’s cities and provide commuters with convenient ways to get around. However, not all cities are improving their transit systems to the same degree, and some are falling behind. This report compares rapid transit in five of Canada’s largest cities: Toronto, Montreal, Vancouver, Calgary and Ottawa. It analyzes how well transit networks serve residents in each of these cities, and how effectively they have responded to the pressures of growth and the need for expanded rapid transit that comes with it.
The full report — by the same name — has lots of details, information, charts and graphics.
Both reports are excellent and accessible, written for a general audience.
