Evolo Condos in Montreal
Notice how, now that we’re no longer hot and bothered, discussion about air conditioning on public transit has ended for another year?

I still think that the metro needs some kind of climate control, I can’t stand on the Cote-Vertu direction platform at Snowdon metro at any time of the year. It’s just way too hot. Even now, with the cooler weather, that platform is sweltering (and since I’m wearing a coat now, it’s even worse!)
Snowdon metro is possibly the worst designed station in the whole system – dark, cramped and stuffy, uncomfortable to move around in. Better air would be some help, I guess.
I totally disagree – the discussion will continue among those who use the metro frequently! The fact remains that the metro cars are still pumping in hot or warm air regardless of the season, making for uncomfortable (and often sleep-inducing!) travel…As for the buses, riders seems to have an aversion to opening windows on many of the routes I used to travel (216, 215, 174, 177 etc.) – in the evenings, it’s rarely a pleasant trip (no circulation of air, coupled with the heat generated from your own layering in the late fall & winter). One evening spent waiting in the Guy-Concordia or Peel metro in mid-January, with full winter attire, should be enough to spark the debate amongst the ‘decision-makers’. But honestly, in terms of public transit Quebec is far behind other N. American cities (we *just* implemented articulated buses for crying out loud!), so I expect there to be a considerable amount of foot-dragging & waffling on the issue for at least a few more years. Guess I’ll continue getting around by bike until Mother Nature forces me off it…
It’s healthier for you anyway.
The Laurier station is unbearably hot, no matter the time of year.
