Quick solutions demanded to transit difficulties

Trajectoire Québec, a group that monitors transit problems, is meeting with transport minister François Bonnardel Monday bringing a list of short-term issues to solve. After last week’s talk about bus maintenance issues at the STM that has to be be first on the list.

I keep thinking back to the casual mention in 2014 by Robert Poëti that the Quebec government never spends all the money it claims to be putting aside for public transit. Is that still true? If so, it ought to be using some of those funds to get the STM more mechanics and whatever else it needs to run more efficiently. I’m one of those people standing waiting on a cold icy street for a bus that never comes. Spend the money, Bonnardel.
