The population of Quebec is estimated that road congestion and the “deficiency” of the current system of public transportation in the capital are very problematic.

The population of Quebec supports the creation of a new transit project in the capital. Some 65 % of the 11 000 respondents to an online survey voted for the ” establishment of a transit network structure “, reveals the report of the consultation on the sustainable mobility of the City, made public Wednesday by the end of the day.

 

By “structuring” refers to a Service bus rapid (BRT) or a tram. The latter gets more support than the SRB in the submissions received by the City as part of its consultation, although the participants have mentioned that the BRT is less expensive.

 

The population of Québec also believes that the congestion and the “deficiency” of the current system of public transportation in the capital are very problematic.

 

The conclusions of the consultation are encouraging for the mayor Régis Labeaume, who wants to put in place a new system of public transport in the city. “Citizens, we have delivered a message of unanimous : Québec is in need of a transit service that is modern, comfortable, frequent and low-cost, he said. Based on the results of this broad consultation, we will develop in the next few weeks, the advisory committee on sustainable mobility, a new proposal of system structuring in transit to Quebec. “

 

Recall that on Monday, mayor Labeaume has said they consider the proposed streetcar as a ” hypothesis to be very serious “.

 

A total of 143 submissions were received in the framework of the consultation on the mobility, which was conducted from June to September.
