Hook public transit users while they're young: study


Get them on buses, métros and trains while they’re young. A new McGill University study has found that young Montrealers are not only using public transit much more these days, but that the shift is holding as they age. The researchers say Montreal-area transit agencies could seize on the trend and make transit even more attractive to youth. That could keep more of them from switching to cars and exacerbating Montreal’s traffic and pollution problems.
