National Transit Strategy: "The economic benefits directly resulting from Canada’s public transit systems are over $10 billion annually.

Positive impacts of public transit on vehicle operating costs, collision costs, air pollution and improved respiratory health alone are valued at $7.71 billion annually.

National ridership reached an all-time high of 1.83 billion trips in 2009, after rising more than 14% over 5 year."
