As government and health officials at all levels have urged physical distancing to help slow the spread of COVID-19, 65 per cent of Canadians surveyed who use ride-sharing services are using it less, while 81 per cent of the respondents who use public transit have limited their use, making car ownership much more appealing. Survey respondents also indicated that even when physical distancing is no longer required, 70 per cent would not revert to using ride sharing, and 40 per cent would not go back to taking public transit.
