Back in November, the STM released their budget highlights for 2017 and it included about 15 major changes.

These included increasing the amount of buses on the road, adding GPS tracking to give real-time updates, and installing display screens at every bus stop.

But the one that got us really excited is the installation of USB charging ports on every bus. 

Your phone will never die again. 

That means you'll never have to overhear two strangers having an usually loud and conversation. You won't have to listen to that guy behind you coughing up a lung, and you'll never suffer through that fascinatingly terrible music the bus driver likes to play, ever again.

This morning, one of our readers got on a bus and spotted one of these new USB ports, that means it's only a matter of time before your bus comes equipped with one of these as well.
