MONTREAL (CP) - The City of Montreal has unveiled an ambitious $8-billion public transit plan for the next 20 years, including a streetcar network and the possibility of tolls on bridges and highways.
Mayor Gerald Tremblay said at a news conference Thursday that the plan is focusing on sustainable development. The mayor says as a result of climate change the city must change its ways and encourage the use of public transit.
The plan would also include extending the subway system, more bicycle paths and an airport rail link.
Its expected to be adopted next fall and would also need federal and provincial participation.
