it would be really cool if the service was offered

inside the glass bus stops -

and integrate some sort of heat lamps to warm us up in the winters.

A bus pass would give you access to the bus shelters that would have heated floors and overhead lights - a small video screen with continuous news channel and advertising to pay for these services and a time delay mechanism showing when the next bus is coming.

 

Now THAT would be cool.

 

Oh yeah! FREE WIFI

From one hand, AMT is being aknowledge on the international news. From the other hand, the drivers are going for strike in the local news. Kinda weird.

Those are some good ideas mtl yul! Obviously the Wi-Fi bit is a bit over the top, however, i wouldn't mind seeing small TV screeens in bus shelters, showing people where the bus is exactly on its route. You could have advertising on those small tv's top pay for the cost of these as well as the up-keep. Have weather updates from meteomedia every 10 minutes, traffic updates every 10 minutes etc.etc.etc.

 

Have heaters placed o the ceiling of the bus shelters. These heaters could be provided by Hydro-Québec, and in return, for the Heaters, we could give Hydro-Québec free advertising on this network!

I dont necessarily disagree but if you do that, homeless people will move in those shelters and live there...

My only wish from AMT was that the trains would come by more often like the metro does, though I know that's kind of unrealistic lol :P

That's why we have a police force.

 

Also, these heaters would ot function at night(when there is no bus service). They would function between 5AM and 1 AM depending on when the last bus passes. These heaters would only work when the temperature outside would drop below -5 degrees celsius. Anything above that, and it's not very cold! I'm pretty sure we can all tolerate -2 temperatures pretty easily!

Even better, you could have those heaters start only 10 minutes before the bus shows up so it is synced up with traffic. It would become self-regulating as users would not tolerate the homeless there.

      On sait tous qu'une station du REM sera construite au bassin Peel, mais son emplacement reste à être déterminé par la CDPQ Infra en partenariat avec la Ville de Montréal. De plus, un concours d'aménagement sera lancé pour cette station.
      Plusieurs sites ont été mentionnés dans ce forum :
      Tour d'aiguillage Wellington Promenade Smith Portion du bâtiment-pont ferroviaire entre William et Ottawa Au sud du bassin Peel dans Pointe-Saint-Charles Il y a des avantages et inconvéninents pour chacun de ces localisations. Qu'en pensez-vous?

      CSX investira plus de 100 M$ à Valleyfield
       
      Après des années de négociations, l’américaine CSX Transportation, l’une des plus importantes sociétés de transport ferroviaire aux États-Unis, investira plus de 100 M$ dans l’implantation au Québec d’un nouveau terminal intermodal, a appris LesAffaires.com.
       
      L’annonce de cet investissement majeur aura lieu ce vendredi, à Salaberry-de-Valleyfield en Montérégie, en présence du ministre des Transports du Québec, Sylvain Gaudreault, et du président et chef de la direction de CSX, Michael J. Ward.
       
      L’investissement, qui varie selon les sources entre 100 M$ et 130 M$, permettrait de créer plus de 600 emplois à Valleyfield pendant la construction et quelque 350 emplois permanent une fois les travaux complétés.
       
      Une très bonne nouvelle pour cette ville d’un peu plus de 40 000 habitants, encore marquée par la fermeture de nombreuses activités manufacturières ces dernières années, dont celles de Gildan et du manufacturiers de pneus Good Year.
       
      Une fois complété, ce terminal est sensé permettre une liaison entre Montréal et tout l’est des États-Unis. Toute la partie entre Valleyfield et l’Ohio à l’ouest, ainsi que la Géorgie au sud, devrait en principe être reliée par une voie ferrée qui offrira des alternatives de transport nouvelles aux entreprises du Québec.
       
      Avec ce nouveau terminal de CSX, la grande région de Montréal disposerait d’un nouveau transporteur ferroviaire de marchandises, capable de la relier à des centres comme Cincinnati, Nashville, Atlanta, Birmingham, Baltimore, Chicago et Cleveland. Une alternative en quelque sorte, aux Canadien National (CN) et Canadian Pacific Railway (CP).
       
      Le gouvernement du Québec doit participer financièrement au projet. Le ministère des Transports du Québec, notamment, pourrait accorder plus de 6M$ pour le réaménagement d’au moins trois intersections qui croisent l’autoroute 530 et la démolition d’un pont.
       
      L'action de CSX Corp se négociait à 21,70$US peu avant la fermeture de la Bourse de New York aujourd'hui, en hausse de 0,91$US ou de 4,35%. Depuis un an, le titre de CSX a reculé de 1,88$US, ou de 8,29%.
