Scrawled on an STM info panel at the Pierrefonds/Roxboro train station: “Does anyone take this bus?”
On a similar topic, Jason Prince ponders how bus transit could be tweaked to win over West island commuters. But the comments point out the obvious difficulties with transit in low-density suburbs: people have complex trips (dropping off the kids; picking up groceries after work, etc), an increasing number of suburb-to-suburb commutes makes it near impossible to create direct routes, and it often requires a car to get to the transit terminus in the first place.
No wonder this West Island bus stop looks a little forlorn.
