    VIA Rail Canada

    One of them is closer to a comeback. A contrario from Southern Island Railway, Chemin de fer de la Gaspésie is alive, with operations currently underway on 39% of its length and repairs on 22% of its length. Complete reopening is planned and budgeted, but not yet announced.

    VIA does offer commuter discounts ― but only for some Corridor stops, which are served by reliable trains.
  4. exo does not have tariffing powers, but is rather a transit operator. ARTM does not have the mandate to promote the use of transit, but rather to plan and fund it. The ARTM has 5 elected officials out of 15 members on its board, in order to de-politicize planning, funding and tariffing of transit. Its first fare grid is yet to come. Hopefully, the actual electoral campaign will not change the transit governance for a gazillionth time in two decades and politics will stay out of transit for some time. Write them directly instead of whining on this board.

    New Flyer wins ATUQ tender for procuring STM 30 Xcelsior Electric vehicles, for 1,1 M$ a piece. STLaval is expected to get 10. http://www.lapresse.ca/actualites/grand-montreal/201808/20/01-5193557-la-stl-soffre-10-bus-entierement-electriques.php

  7. Indeed the trains will not be unattended. On another note, exo is offering 30% (and TRAM1 for the price of CAM) on monthly passes until December to compensate for loss of service on exo6 (DM) line due to REM work. https://rtm.quebec/en/customer-service/rem
  8. I also notice that bikes are allowed on all trains except some DM peak departures. That is great.

    470 is part of the 10 min max network.
  10. Except for one 3000-series car, the AMT branding will persist for some time.

    Thanks. Tried to sort that out in the wiki.
  14. Finally, MS CTMA Vacancier still did not leave Méchins and MS CTMA Madeleine is needed for Souris/Les Îles services... so no drydock bay nor replacement ship was available for Matane/Côte-Nord last week. Ridiculously misadapted MS Félix Antoine Savard provided last week for the high sea route, that has had its schedule doubled to supply for demand. Many of these added departures were cancelled due to "strong" winds and "high" waves. Transportation Canada emitted strict conditions for this ship to sail from Matane. EDIT : Savard is still on duty. She was unloading vehicles today, next to her very big sister FA Gauthier.

    Wiki party. Can someone confirm these Autocar des Chutes truisms? I am sure most of them were right by 2011, but my memory is not so fresh. No more Classic in operation No more TL-960 in operation No more RTS in operation 2004 and 2005 LFS's are all either retired or sold
