Introduction Contd...

"It's not for long trips. You ride it and you return it, and [for] the first half hour there's no charge,"5 said Gérald Tremblay, Mayor, Montréal, describing the functioning of the system in brief.

The project, the first such in Montréal, was part of Stationnement de Montréal's initiatives to improve the overall transport system and encourage more people to use public transport.

In October 2007, the city of Montréal put forth its transportation plan called 'Reinventing Montréal,' which was an attempt to develop public transit and improve the overall mobility in the city.
