MONTREAL — A group of researchers at McGill University in Montreal recently surveyed 3,400 people to establish a clear hierarchy among the main six work-trip modes: driving, riding (bus and metro and commuter rail), walking, and cycling, with walking (85%) coming in first followed closely by commuter rail (84%), reported CityLab.

Cycling (82%), driving (77%), metro riders (76%) and bus riders (75.5%) rounded out the top six categories.
