The use of public transportation and walking/bicycling are an effective means to recommended daily physical activity. This article discusses potential disparities in access to transportation systems in Montreal, Canada.
Adult respondents (N=6,495) in 33 nested areas with access to the road network, the subway system, and a public bicycle share program were surveyed via telephone. Sociodemographic characteristics were collected on both the individual level (e.g., age, education, household income) and area level variables (high school educated and income levels).
The results presented in this supplement to the Annals of Behavioral Medicine show that there are relatively few disparities to transportation access. These results differ from similar studies performed in North America.
