Seeing the cars outside, with all the light and the urban setting, makes you wonder how beautiful it would look if the city had a tram system!

None of the videos featuring bus rides replacing tramways that I watched was decent enough to be sharing here... neither charming nor ugly...

Trial bus - somebody had been asking about it, I think ... I wonder if it yields as crappy, lurching a ride as our current fleet of bendies does:

The hearts are placed (a) on the left side of the seats to discourage impo'tant retards from taking to shagging, humping their respective seats, and (b) as a last resort into compelling them to trim their weight should squeezing by either dynamic or fixed equipment be too deficient a reminder...no matter their lure or square panes, my fondness for these pre-WW2 beauts will never be crushed:

Funny your bringing up the matter of semi-logos, coz I noticed the following retired logo of theirs got rendered in that animation of the forthcoming Legendre bus dépôt...all over the facilities:



...especially when their ginormous lopsided heart-paired one encrusts half of all their bus windows, blighting any way of telling just where the **** you must be, particularly at night:

19 Sep 2012 :
Westmounters worry over the future of rail line electrification


The Agence metropolitaine de transport’s plan to electrify Montreal’s rail lines appears to have been derailed – and some Westmounters aren’t happy about it.

Why set the report to a picture of an intercity train making its call somewhere possibly hundreds of miles away Canadians are dim ...

09 Oct 2012 :
More buses needed, Montreal’s transit agency says

The previous Liberal government provided $150 million that helped the STM create new bus routes and increase service on existing routes between 2007 and 2011. That fund is credited with helping boost ridership by 12 per cent.

:PFFT: In addition to relishing the 'acency's' planners being either replaced or tasked effective strategy, I fancy something change with the daily's assigned transit-matters reporter
