"The benefits are obvious: Cleaner air and less congestion. So is one remedy. A single full commuter bus can replace 40 solo-driven cars...At current fleet levels, Ottawa's roads would be choked with about 40,000 more cars each rush hour if not for OC Transpo. Vancouver would have 60,000 more rush hour vehicles.
