According to slightly stale data lifted from the CoV website, 43 per cent of Metro Vancouver’s population commutes into the city for work, leading to 58,000 cars recorded entering the city each morning in 2006. Of that, roughly 38,000 entered downtown. And, while the number of commuters entering the city has dropped sharply since 1981 (down from 62,000), the number of drivers entering downtown has remained unchanged. According to the city’s website, Vancouver boasts the lowest number of driving commuters in Canada.
