I was looking at this video and was wondering how Canadian cities would compare:

This one's specifically for small cities, but the data being used also applies for all urban (urbanized) area down to a certain size (50K and above). I was wondering what the equivalent database would be where it lists the agencies and ridership as well as the urban area so a per capita calculation could be made.
I suspect that Canadian urban area would probably constitute half the top ten list if this was a Northern America list, but it'd be neat to see the data.

An example of the dataset for the US: https://www.transit.dot.gov/ntd/data...abase-uza-sums

Having a hard time finding a similar dataset for Canada but I did find this. I think it only applies to cities as opposed to urban areas. Might help answer what you are asking but on a basic level. If I find anything else, I'll post or hopefully another CAD poster finds something more detailed.

Something to nibble on.
