CANADIAN HIGHWAY SYSTEM STUDY: THE AGE OF LEISURE AND CANADIAN HIGHWAYS

This report is concerned with changing time-use and patterns of work and leisure in Canadian society, and with the implications of these changes for highway transportation in the 1972-82 time period. The study has three objectives: first, to examine and identify the present concept of leisure and review future projections and trends for time-use and leisure time; second, to examine leisure activities in order to ascertain the importance of mobility to these activities and thereby identify the transportation role related to leasure; and finally, to identify the direct inter-relationships between leisure and highway transportatation and assess the potential impact of the changes in leasure on highway travel.
