Road, all data except bus: The number of total road vehicle kilometers for 1995 is an estimate. See Appendix B for explanation.
Bus: All bus data are from a sample of Canadian companies engaged in scheduled intercity bus, urban transit, school bus and charter and other types of bus service from Statistics Canada's annual Survey of the Passenger Bus and Urban Transit Industry.
Transit: Although vehicle kilometers for transit rail are nonexistent, vehicle kilometers for local motor bus are included under road, buses.

Road: Although no data are collected for vehicle travel on all Mexican roads, the Mexican Institute of Transport (IMT) estimates that the total vehicle-kilometers for all types of passenger cars, trucks and buses using the main interurban road corridors (of which there are 10) is approximately 36 billion vehicle kilometers per year. Main interurban road corridors comprise 25,190 kilometers or approximately 5 percent of the Mexican national highway network. For additional information on main interurban road corridors and Mexico's national road network, see the Secretaría de Comunicaciones y Transportes (SCT) report, Modernization of the Main Highway System (Mexico City, D.F.: 1998.)
