Plateau Mont Royal's new plan d'emplacement transport plan

The report promised improvements for pedestrians, school children, residential streets, bicycles, buses, the metro, car-sharing, taxis, bixi, everyone except our old friend the automobile.

We took a look through the plan today and we are impressed (and skeptical) that the relentless 2% increase in car use every year can be halted and reversed.

The report had a big list of actions that the arrondissement of P-M-R is undertaking.

The ones that interested us include improved bicycle parking at metro stations (and all over), a better bicycle path network, and slower traffic speed limits.

We'll look at it in detail later. It's time to cook supper. The fridge has been refilled with food and we must investigate this first.
