Leger has extensive expertise in the field of transportation, particularly public transportation. Public transit is an intrinsic part of a sustainable development approach, especially in major urban centres, and plays an important role in easing road congestion and improving traffic flow. Public transportation depends in part on public investment; it is therefore a societal choice that requires pubic consultation to determine which projects should be implemented.
For nearly 30 years, Leger has been helping transport agencies conduct surveys of riders’ habits and travel behavior in order to better meet their needs. The information emerging from our solutions specifically helps transportation network planners and administrators make better decisions, optimize the use of infrastructures, and achieve sustainable, safer and more effective mobility for riders. Over the past few decades, Leger has been part of the most important public transit projects aimed at understanding how people travel, evaluating how services are used, measuring user satisfaction, testing various innovative solutions, and estimating optimal pricing.
A case in point, Leger is proud to have conducted the last three Origin-Destination (O-D) surveys for the Montréal region. The O-D Survey paints a portrait of the trips made by residents of Greater Montréal, all modes of transportation combined. The results of the O-D Survey are decisive in supporting the development, implementation and evaluation of urban transport policies and projects. Conducted over the span of a few months with nearly 80,000 households, the O-D Survey is the second largest survey of its kind, after the census.
