Societe de transport de Montreal (STM) officials late last week released the agency's $1.5 billion (in Canadian dollars) budget for 2016. The budget is aimed at reaching a balance between customer experience, increased demand for service and sustainable fiscal management, STM officials said in a press release.The agency plans to improve train frequency on the Orange and Green lines by adding more than 800,000 car-miles.Additionally, fares will remain at their 2015 levels for the first six months of the year."This budget is a reflection of the strategic shift taken by the new executive team, in which improving the customer experience is a core priority," said STM Chair Philippe Schnobb. "From now on, two overriding concerns will guide the STM’s actions: planning service efficiently and reducing the deficit in asset maintenance."
