METRO CORDON COUNT PROGRAM, 1987
The program collects data on weekday vehicle and person travel throughout the Metropolitan area and uses it to monitor travel trends and the impacts of improvements to the transportation system. The 1987 program was actually conducted over 2 years, with the downtown cordon and downtown core surveyed in 1986 and the remainder of Metro Toronto in 1987. The Regional Municipalities of York and Peel also conducted cordon counts in 1987 at the same time, using similar counting standards and incorporating Metro data for the boundary crossings. The report presents a summary of the data on vehicle and person movements; usage of subways, commuter rail services, and expressways; and the distribution of person trips between the automobile, transit, and commuter rail.
