Abstract: The decibel noise level on a busy street was measured over one hour in three different trials. The noise created by buses, which have been the target of noise complaints in this neighbourhood, was analyzed to find that noise levels peaked during the minute before or after Canada Line arrival or departure. Noise levels were reduced by 12 ± 10 dB when buses turned off their engines.
