Mass is suitable here, not light ... no shuttle either, flexible integration necessary too.

Do you really think the traffic volume would be so great that it couldn't be handles by a multicar tram-train running every 10 minutes? It could have capacity not much lower than the blue metro line considering the LRT could have 4 articulated cars that can carry up to 250 people each. .

I do.

Max capicity of six-car trains here is 960 (Blue and Yellow lines); nine-car, 1,440 ... its usage would be bound to be heavy sooner than later, not light ... e.g., many standees found all along the Blue line for most of a day Monday to Sunday nowadays ... street snow clearing would probably invalidate any proposal for street-running airport link(s) ... also, I can think of two other destinations than simply the city centre that could do with being linked to the airport.

I wonder how other snow cities Buffalo, Minneapolis, Calgary, etc. deal with surface LRTs and street clearing.

Btw, when I mentioned 250 passengers I meant per articulated car rather than per train. If there were 4 cars that would total 1000 pasengers, but I'm not sure if Montreal's downtown block sizes would allow that or not. I suppose it would depend on where they positioned the stops...

But Montreal's isn't big at all. Only two of its :pfft: five commuter lines operate seven days/week ... plus two of its five intercity stops are merely halts.

But unless it acts as a metro over a similarly large area as the Montreal Metro does, I wouldn't compare it to a city with a full metro system in terms of rail service.

This side seating is compromised and also abominably raised too high. Weird to think this crappy city bus here hails from the Volvo umbrella, quality could be pegged to that family ages ago.

... yesterday evening's ''
Montreal's train authority says it wants to keep secret a study on electrifying its network


A taxpayer-funded, $1.1-million study into electrification of train lines was completed in 2011.

So singular, "proposal" ... this ½ study mustn't have covered 3rd rail

Don't forget that interiors are specified by transit operators rather than the company that makes the buses.
