Nota bene : For the datas about de students and the employees, to differentiate between car passengers and drivers, there was not enough observations for car passengers, the datas are not representative. This is why the automobile category includes carpooling and solo auto (we answer in the single occupancy, our datas for CAR that include car passengers, by extention carsharing).

The OD survey is approximately 74,000 households in the Montreal metropolitan area made it possible to describe 360,000 trips made by the 170,000 people making up these households.
