Last week, the STM announced many new plans to improve service in 2017 and people couldn't be happier.

Mainly because they also pledged that they wouldn't be raising their fees in 2017.


But there's another announcement that's sure to make public transit user extra happy.

The STM will have 30 AZUR trains in total running throughout the system by the end of 2017.

Currently there are 10 AZUR trains with another being added at the end of this month, and 1 more by the end of 2016. 18 more will be added in 2017 for a total of 30 trains.

As if that wasn't awesome enough, they are also deploying the iBus system which will allow live tracking of every bus in the city.

And just this morning, the STM pledged to keep guaranteed 10 minute bus intervals running all day long instead of just during rush hour.
