Only two days after the end of a week-long transit strike that created hassles for thousands of people, the Montreal Tranist Corporation announced plans to hike fares:
Transit users’ patience will be tried again as the Montreal Transit Corp. plans to unleash fare increases, including a $5 increase on the monthly regular bus pass come January.
A monthly pass would increase to $59 from its current $54, The Gazette has learned.
After a strike by its maintenance workers hobbled service last week, the transit agency will now hit bus and métro passengers on Montreal Island in the pocketbook as part of its 2004 operating budget to be tabled tomorrow or Thursday, sources said.
Is there anyone left out there who isn’t completely, totally fed up with public transit?
