We wanted to find Montreal's biggest transit problem. We decided to capture a moment of time in traffic - 5:15 pm on Thursday, February 23. We asked listeners what they thought needed to be changed in Montreal.

  12. We asked- How we can improve public transit in Montreal?
  13. But one idea floated to the top.
  14. TheLynxBlog Feb 27, 11:54pm via Twitter for iPhone @cbcHomerun Portland, Oregon is a good model in terms of public transit.
  15. So we looked to Portland, OR and found one person in Montreal who spent time studying their transit system,
