With exception of longer and colder winter, I found the lifestyle of Quebec much similar to that of Sweden: the public transportation system, (the) direction of traffic, (the) busy streets of downtown and the socializing of people in after-hours.
If you can see above, while listing 4 different things, I have omitted "the" for the second and third listed items, but I am not sure if it's grammatical.
Could you tell me whether that's acceptable?
and I would be grateful if you could also check the grammar of the whole sentence.
