La STM veut un réseau 100% électrifié en 2025


Le trolleybus fera aussi son apparition sur des artères achalandées comme les boulevards Henri-Bourassa et Saint-Michel d'ici 2025. Le projet de BRT (Bus Rapid Transit) sur le boulevard Pie-IX pourrait être converti en trolleybus.

MARIE-EVE SHAFFER
MÉTRO
21 mai 2010 15:42

Dès 2025, le réseau d’autobus de la Société de transport de Montréal (STM) sera complètement électrifié.

«On a décidé de prendre les devants», a déclaré vendredi le directeur général de la STM, Yves Devin, à l'occasion d'un colloque sur l'électrification des transports au Québec organisé par l'Université du Québec à Montréal.

Ainsi, les autobus hybrides ou fonctionnant avec du diesel seront graduellement remplacés par des autobus électriques, qui sont présentement très tendance en Europe. «Notre objectif, c'est que les projets de démonstration partent en 2011-2012», a précisé M. Devin. Ces autobus de type biberonneur fonctionneront grâce à des piles qui seront rechargées au début d'un circuit et à la fin.

En attendant, la STM cessera d'acheter des autobus carburant au diesel. Son conseil d'administration a approuvé la résolution voulant que les 316 prochains autobus commandés seront hybrides. Même chose pour les autobus articulés.

Le trolleybus fera aussi son apparition sur des artères achalandées comme les boulevards Henri-Bourassa et Saint-Michel d'ici 2025. Le projet de BRT (Bus Rapid Transit) sur le boulevard Pie-IX pourrait être converti en trolleybus. «L'avantage du trolleybus, c'est qu'entre deux autobus électrifiés, il peut y avoir un autobus au diesel sur une même ligne», a expliqué le directeur exécutif de l'exploitation de la STM, Carl Desrosiers. La STM planifie commander une centaine de trolleybus l'année prochaine, mais elle attend les conclusions d'une étude sur le sujet avant de procéder.

Enfin, le tramway fera assurément sont retour à Montréal d'ici 15 ans, selon M. Devin. Trois lignes sont envisagées : l'une sur le chemin de la Côte-des-Neiges, l'autre sur l'avenue du Parc et une dernière dans le centre-ville.

By the way, I used to like busses, i.e., before they were downsized....even our new bendy busses are smaller than prior regular busses...

It'd appear by the following report that the city wishes to overly clutter the streets with busses; a 15-minute battery charge that gives 20 minutes` worth of juice (traction) would be absurd:

STM bus fleet to be fully electric by 2025

'Fast-charge' buses would have charging stations at ends of each route

By Catherine Solyom, The Gazette May 22, 2010

The STM says its bus fleet will be zero-emission – and zero-noise – by 2025.

MONTREAL – Montreal's public transit system will be entirely electric by 2025, says the Société de transport de Montréal, making the city the first in North America to pledge to use only zero-emission - and zero-noise - vehicles.

The STM is currently waiting for a shipment of 380 new diesel buses, with a lifespan of about 15 years, said Carl Desrosiers, chief of operations for the STM. But these will be the last of their kind in Montreal.

In the meantime, the corporation will begin to introduce more efficient, and less polluting buses starting next year.

According to its action plan, released yesterday, in 2011 it will start testing electric, articulated trolley buses, linked to overhead wires, to be used eventually on some of the busiest bus routes, like Pie IX Blvd., Henri Bourassa Blvd., Saint-Michel Blvd. and Notre Dame St.

And by 2012, all new buses purchased will be at least minimally hybrid - many of them articulated.

But the real change will come in the form of fully-electric buses, tested for Montreal winters and eventually replacing most of the STM's 1,300 buses over the next 15 years.

The so-called "fast-charge" bus - rechargeable in 10 to 15 minutes - is extremely promising, Desrosiers said.

"Right now a regular bus does about 500 kilometres before refuelling. Right now, in the cold, no battery can do that. But if you put a power station at both ends of a bus line, when the bus arrives it recharges for 10-15 minutes and it's good for another 20 kilometres. ... That's the future." The fast-charge buses also have the added advantage of running without any overhead wires or trolley tracks on the ground, and hence they are able to bypass any obstacles on the road, like water main breaks or car accidents.

The move toward electricity as the main fuel source, as opposed to diesel, biodiesel or natural gas, is both economical and ecological, Desrosiers said, and the STM hopes it will entice more people to use the public transit system.

"Last year we used 45 million litres of gas," Desrosiers said. "My dream is that in 2025 we will use zero. That's a lot less greenhouse gases emitted. Around the world everyone's heading toward the electric buses. Here electricity is cheap and clean."

:PFFT: To think that more archive footage of li'l ol' Bournemouth's transit legacy exists out there than of Montreal's, plus it's just taught me something that I never knew (had?) existed bus turntables in the middle of public streets/roadways, 4'33" and 5'45"...
