Transports en commun - Discussion générale

Recommended Posts

(Le samedi 31 mars 2007)L'administration Tremblay-Zampino planche sur l'idée d'ouvrir toute l'année des corridors cyclables dans les grandes artères de Montréal. Les détails seront inclus dans le Plan de transport de Montréal, qui doit être rendu public dans un mois, selon ce qu'a appris La Presse.

 

Ces corridors cyclables prendront la forme de bandes de quelques pieds de largeur peintes au sol dans les grands axes qui traversent le centre-ville de Montréal.

 

Le sujet est tellement chaud à la Ville que le responsable du transport collectif au comité exécutif, André Lavallée, a refusé d'en parler hier. Depuis quelques jours, il a tenu des rencontres intensives avec des fonctionnaires de la Ville pour mettre la dernière main au fameux plan.

 

Le responsable des communications au comité exécutif, Darren Becker, a confirmé que le vélo sera un volet important du plan et que l'équipe du maire de Montréal a l'intention de dévoiler une «vision globale pour le cyclisme» à Montréal.

the new line towards the east end and Repentigny/Mascouche

 

Wasnt there rumors of another line on the southshore towards St-Constant

 

i'm not really sure. I know there's already two lines serving the South SHore. One that goes to Candiac and the other that crosses the Victoria Bridge and goes to Mont St-Hilaire.

 

I would assume the most important line for the Gov't would be towards Mascouche and Repentigny.

(29/04/2007)La Ville de Montréal investira 100 millions de dollars dans la réfection de ses infrastructures routières cette année.

Quatre-vingt-dix pour cent de cette somme sera consacrée à la réfection de portions d'artères importantes, comme le boulevard Queen Mary, près de l'oratoire Saint-Joseph, et le boulevard Angrignon.

 

Le maire Gérald Tremblay demande aux Montréalais d'emprunter autant que possible les transports en commun et le réseau cyclable, puisque de nombreux chantiers routiers perturberont le trafic dans la métropole cet été.

 

En tout, 72 chantiers de réfection seront aménagés.

 

Les 100 M$ injectés s'ajoutent aux 40 M$ déjà consentis cette année par les 19 arrondissements dans la réfection de leurs rues locales.

 

Dix millions de dollars seront par ailleurs consacrés à la réparation des nids-de-poule sur tout le réseau.

Time to charge an arm and leg for people who do not car pool, plus we should have a congestion tax, but like 4-8x the amount in NYC so less cars near or around the city. Probably get more people on the bus, metro or train or atleast walking!

If you're going to do that, you are going need to continue improving public transit. Cities with 'car taxes' near the center (like London), are much covered by public transit. There are Tube stations everywhere. They should also make it cheaper for people to use the metro, etc. It costs $2.50 for a one way metro pass... In London, you could ride the underground as much as you want all day for £4. If our transit can't be improved, there should be no car tax.

 

If you build it, they will come:

System length: 408 km / 253 miles

No. of lines: 12

No. of stations: 275 served (253 owned)

Daily ridership: 3 million (approximate)

 

Montreal being about 1/3 the size of London should expect 92 stations, instead we have 68. We don't need any new lines, we just need to expand the ones we have further. Our commuter train system and metro system should also be better integrated.

With the transit system we have now, imposing a congestion charge will simply kill all businesses downtown. People won't come downtown, they'll stay in their suburbs, and many company will flock to their suburbs which in turn will simply make matter worse.

So the city and the government, should of thought of that problem years ago to get a better public transit system in place, but they would rather sit on their hands. Someone should really go over there and put a gun at someone head and get the ball rolling on a better transit system.
