Bits of news about the metro

Elevators are being installed at du Collège metro station; across town, the pedestrian tunnel from Champ-de-Mars towards Old Montreal has reopened after almost two years of work.

Strange phrasing on that CTV elevator piece: “It’s part of a revitalization project by the STM, one that will see the construction of several elevators in metro stations across the city…” This has nothing to do with “revitalization” – it’s not like the metro was falling into disuse. The STM committed some time ago to full accessibility in the metro, not just “several” elevators. But it needs time and money to do it.
