    Users should be aware that Canada's Top for-hire motor carriers of freight covers 76 carriers in the first quarter of 1997 and 74 in the second quarter of 1997, compared to 67 in 1996. Six more general freight carriers and three more specialized freight carriers have reached annual revenues of $25 million or more at the beginning of 1997. One top general freight carrier and one top specialized freight carrier, however, went out-of-business during the second quarter of 1997.

  • Table: 50-002-X19970053240

The operating ratio of specialized freight carriers remained at 0.93 between the second half of 1996.

  • Table: 50-002-X19970043098
    Description:

    Despite the benefits of taking public transit, Canadians are using it less and less. In 1996, each Canadian took an average of about 46 trips on some form of urban transit, the lowest level since 1970 when the average fell to 43 trips per person. In contrast, Canadians were using mass transit at three times that rate at the end of the Second World War.

  • Table: 50-002-X19970023093
    Description:

    Private carriers are businesses that maintain a fleet of trucks to carry their own goods. The motor carriers of freight, private carriers survey covers those private carriers with at least $1 million in annual operating expenses that can provide separate accounting information for their trucking activities within the larger busines. This survey collects data on the size, structure and financial performance of those reporting private carriers. The number of carriers reporting to the survey in 1995 was 442, an increase of 22% over 1994. This increase was due, not to new firms entering the industry, but to an effort to contact as many carriers as possible using a recently updated list. In the following text, 1995 data comparisons with previous years are performed on a per carrier basis.
