STM to buy 17 more Azur trains

The city plans to buy 17 more Azur trains in response to Philippe Couillard’s make-work scheme for Bombardier workers. Montreal’s basically paying for jobs in La Pocatière, because the STM was prepared to keep the MR-73 trains running.

The STM says the last few MR-63 trains, original to the system, will be withdrawn from service in June. The last MR-63 will run on each of the four lines June 18-21 according to the graphic shown at the end of this article.
