I have just written something about "tram way" in one of my posts which kevin initiated about weather. I thought I should use the right post for this very interesting suggestion that I feel we all should go for it.
Tram way in Montreal started in 1861 and in 1952 they were replaced by the buses. If the tram way is re-introduced in downtown Montreal, how many of us would like to go for it? Please respond.
Do you like this idea of TRAM WAY on Ste. Catherine? I would like to know how many of us endorse this idea?
I am for it and I would like to suggest they make it for FREE and close the street for cars from At Water West to Berri UQAM East, but let the crossing streets North to South and vice versa to continue the same way.
Also, the extra space that will be available on the side of the street because of the tram way on one side, they should encourage more CAFE and RESTAURANTS to use the street for their customers to sit and enjoy eating. They should also remove the ashphalt and make it a cobbled stone street with some nice landscaping, fountains and decorative plants, hanging pots from poles which could have flowers in the spring and summer time.
The new tram way should start from At Water to Peel and another service running at the same time from Peel to Berri UQAM and must stop at every block. It would really be nice and pollution free.
Lets suggest this to the City of Montreal and sign a petition! LOL.
