The relationship between urban transit subsidy and other variables determining the transit system is explored in this report. Descriptive trends in subsidies, levels of service and productivity over several city population categories are discussed and outlined in graphical form for the period 1966 to 1976 in Canada. A number of selected case studies of Canadian urban transit operations are reviewed in some detail and the main conclusions arising out of the international and Canadian case study analyses are presented.
