Montrealers using public transit like never before: "MONTREAL - Never before have Montrealers used public transit as much as they do today.
In 2011, Société de transport de Montréal expects 405 million trips to be taken on its buses and the métro, STM president Michel Labrecque announced Tuesday.
That will beat the previous record: 398 million trips, set in 1947, when the city had an extensive tramway network. The tramway was gradually removed before being eliminated in 1959."
