Ottawa loves to commute by transit and the capital has one of the highest rates of cycling in Canada.

That's the story about commute times in the 2016 Census released today by Statistics Canada.

In Canada, the number of commuters using public transit spiked by almost 50 per cent in the last two decades.

Among Canada's biggest cities, Ottawa-Gatineau had the highest proportion of workers using public transit at just over 18 per cent of the population.
