New arrangement to speed train to New York
A new arrangement with the U.S. means the one train from Montreal to New York every day will not have to be searched in Saint-Lambert, this being done in Montreal before departure.
But what about the long wait at the border? A thing that really drags that trip out, and makes it 11 instead of the 6 or 7 it could be, is the train stopping at the border while everyone’s interviewed (and, from my observation, everyone who isn’t white is brought to a separate car for extra searching and intensive questioning). That’s the thing they need to fix.
Later note: mucho clarification in the comments.
