Abstract

In Atlantic Canada, people spend an increasing amount of time, energy and money in getting from one place to another: Because of urban sprawl and traffic congestion, commuters living in and around cities spend more time going to and from work. Because of the centralization of public services in urban areas, rural residents are travelling further for jobs, health care, post-secondary education, shopping, recreation or other activities. Because of long-distance labour mobility and globalization, people are now commuting greater distances to go to work, often hopping across continents or oceans. And tourists are coming from ever more distant lands to visit Atlantic Canada, moving between urban and rural areas.
