Stupid question, but does not the métro de Montréal run using rubber tires? Forgive me for I have not been following this thread.
Merci

Was it really necessary to compel me into reading their drivel? Limiting news reports I share to mere headlines is one method I follow at trying to keep these boards free from blight. :psst: They're not the only news outlet around this country that's guilty of that line of reporting. Besides, either your country become less populated or we instead wait for our forthcoming, inevitably hasty joint union with Mexico .. although neither one of our countries' news sectors has been bearing any knack at paying much attention to stuff happening beyond our coasts for ages now either

Now that trainrover is banned I hope the rest of us are able to keep the thread from dying. He made up over 70% of the post count of this thread, and although I often didn't know what he as talking about, some of the articles and pictures he posted were quite interesting.

+1 half the time I don't even know what he is alluding to with these random twitter-like posts I find all over the forums.

I can update this thread once in a while. I'm familiar with public transport in Montréal, as I have worked in that field. I've been following this site for a long time, but I just registered.

The Agence Métropolitaine de Transport (AMT, the agency that plans metropolitan public transit projects, integrates fares, operates commuter trains) published last month a tender for geotechnic drilling services for the future Blue line to Anjou.

I'm still a bit skeptical of the idea of extending the blue line since any significant increase in ridership it attracts will also likely mean an increase in the number of people transferring to the orange line which is already at capacity. It seems like currently many people take connecting buses to the green line instead.

They could extend the Yellow Line to Outremont or something. This will relieve the Orange Line and boost usage of the Blue Line with the extension.

In some documents relative to the tender, the AMT is looking to build a new garage near Côte-Vertu station on the Orange line. This would allow much shorter train intervals and it is probable that the STM gets rid of the rule where two trains cannot be in the same interstation thanks to the new train control softwares.

Also, the future BRT along Pie-IX boulevard (BRT lines will continue towards downton via Notre-Dame street) will serve people currently converging to the Orange and the Blue line, greatly reducing overcrowding. I saw documents about that, I'll see if I can find them.
