Optimizing the bus transportation system for better local and inter-city service
The municipalities of La Prairie, Candiac and Saint-Philippe have recently seen an increase in mass transit travel to Montreal. The downtown terminal was already at full capacity and could not add more departures. Stantec therefore analyzed the cities' transportation system in order to improve the bus service on Montreal's South Shore.
Our professionals examined the existing transit system and developed effective solutions to address current and future challenges. We estimated the number of trips, travel time and bus capacity rates, developed a demographic profile of the area and estimated future needs of local residents.
This approach allowed us to replan routes, propose additional park-and-ride parking, modify bus sizes according to actual needs and adjust transit and transfer times, while increasing service hours by 22%.
Following the system optimization, user surveys showed a significant improvement in satisfaction with the mass transit services provided.
