If you look carefully after pausing the video at 3'11", you can see where the Édouard-Montpetit station recessed ceiling and adjacent walls where the two pairs of illuminated are located. I'm convinced that this is where passageways will be bored to effect an interchange with the Mount Royal tunnel (two miles north of downtown -- the Deux-Montagnes plus the Blainville-St-Jerôme [to be re-routed] and the forthcoming Train de l'Est lines) will be effected, for it's quite easy to feel the commuter trains rumbling by as they pass underneath. No other station has such a recess. (The Parc-Snowdon portion of the Blue Line was opened 1988.)

Montreal métro stations become underground saunas

Temperatures in individual subway cars varied between 28.9C and 35.9C on all lines between noon and 6:30 p.m.



temperatures in Centrigrade


Either August or September is worse than July...

Report on viability of air conditioning on Montreal buses due at end of year
By James Mennie, The Gazette
August 9, 2011

MONTREAL - The humidex will be hovering around 30 this week and city buses will start to fill now that the construction holiday has ended.

But sweltering Montreal commuters will have to wait until the end of this year to know whether the Société de transport de Montréal (STM) will even think about giving the green light to air conditioning on its buses.

STM spokesperson Isabelle Tremblay said on Monday that an ongoing survey of passengers for their views on whether they’d welcome air conditioning on city buses would continue until next month and that transit authority workers – including maintenance personnel and drivers – would be polled for their opinions, as well.

“We won’t have a report (on the viability of air conditioning) until the end of this year.”

Tremblay’s comments come as the STM polls riders on bus routes 24 (Sherbrooke), 10 (De Lorimier), 103 (Monkland), 165 (Côte des Neiges), 173 (métro bus Victoria), 535 (Park Ave./Côte des Neiges reserved lane) and the 747 Express to Trudeau airport on whether they would welcome – and be willing to pay more in transit fares – for air conditioning on STM buses.

That survey last month prompted The Gazette to dispatch four reporters armed with identical digital thermometers to take temperature readings on the STM network during the hottest part of the day (noon to 3 p.m.) and again during the afternoon-rush hour.

The results showed that in many cases, the temperature (without the humidity factored in) exceeded the temperature outside — in one instance hitting 38C.

While The Gazette’s experiment simply confirmed what many regular commuters know, it also quantified just how steamy buses can become during a Montreal summer and explained in part the transit authority’s decision to launch the survey a year after dismissing air conditioning on buses as too expensive and environmentally unfriendly. The STM had argued that its studies showed it would cost about $20 million to equip its buses with air-conditioning units and an additional $5 million annually to maintain them. Fuel consumption would increase by about 25 per cent, the transit authority argued, while exhaust from the air-conditioning units and the buses themselves would create about 3,200 tonnes of greenhouse gases a year.

And a survey conducted earlier for the STM found that air conditioning was a priority of only 14 per cent of métro users. Among bus users, AC ranked 12th as a priority.

Air conditioning on the city’s métro system, which would cost an estimated $50 million to install and $2 million annually to maintain, is not being considered.

Tremblay acknowledged on Monday that no matter what the survey established when it comes to commuters and air conditioning, any decision on whether to equip buses to make them cooler in the summer will ultimately be determined by the STM’s finances.

Heat wave index: The Gazette measured the temperature across the city at noon and during the evening rush hour. We focused on metro cars and stations, which are not air-conditioned.

LOL. On The London Underground in summer the temperatures can reach 50 degrees celcius.

Surprising considering that London doesn't get as hot as Montreal in the summer time.

What kind of buses have no AC on during summer?

Outrageous. Unthinkable.

Trouble is, the map only shows root temperatures, i.e., before factoring in muggy Montreal humidity for the resultant "feel-like" temperatures

Rising costs derail Train de l'Est project

Price tag for long-awaited commuter line soars to $665 million, report says


Yet yesterday's news reported $4.1 billion being spent this year for roadworks, with many further $ billions spent prior years

I really wish that the Montreal metro were open 24/7. But there's no way that's going to happen due to maintenance.
