Public transit use slightly up

Public transit use in the urban area climbed by 4% between 2013 and 2018, an increase that’s the smallest in 20 years. This covers the period when Denis Coderre cut the STM’s funding, so what a surprise.

La Presse also examines the promised changes in suburban transit, to better serve parts of the agglomeration most addicted to the automobile – including the long promised ideal of a streamlined fare system.
