Communting in Greater Victoria

The Canadian Census has some good data on commuting. I went through that data to get some sense on this region.

Walk/Bike to work
  • City of Victoria - 32.9%
  • Sidney - 20.1%
  • Oak Bay - 19.3%
  • Esquimalt - 19.2%
  • Saanich 10.9%
BC Average - 8.9%
Greater Victoria average - 16.1%

Transit top five
  • Esquimalt - 16.2%
  • City of Victoria - 12.6%
  • Saanich - 11.3%
  • View Royal - 9.9%
  • Oak Bay - 9.4%
BC Average - 10.3%
Greater Victoria Average - 10.2%

Carpool passenger top five
  • Oak Bay - 8.4%
  • Langford - 8.1%
  • Esquimalt - 7.7%
  • Colwood - 7.7%
  • Hihglands - 7.7%
BC average - 7.7%
Greater Victoria average - 6.8%

Driver
  • Metchosin - 85.7%
  • Highlands - 81.9%
  • North Saanich - 81.2%
  • Central Saanich - 80.4%
  • Langford - 77.7%
BC average - 71.6%
Greater Victoria average - 64.9%

From 2001 to 2006 BC had a rather dramatic rise in transit users, 54% more transit users but Greater Victoria did not see this sort of a rise. There was only a 17% more transit users in the CRD.

I need to head off with Max to the store, so this is the end of this at the moment.
