Summary
  • Much greater distances in Canada
  • This affects the culture of traveling
  • Canadians rather use a car to overcome
    (generally) greater distances
  • In Germany, everything is closer people walk
    and ride their bikes more often
  • The climate has a big impact on transport
    behaviour since Canada generally has more extreme
    winters than Germany
  • Due to the smaller population density in Canada,
    its not as feasible to build the infrastructure
    (ie. trains, strassenbahn, etc.)
  • In general, Europe has historically had a culture
    and higher standard of public transport
