This is a depiction of the tramway operating on Boulevard Charest. New figures from the city suggest many people will prefer to take urban transit than take their cars downtown.

Ridership projections for the city’s proposed tramway system were not negatively affected by a series of major changes announced in recent months. That’s according to a report city officials released last week. In fact, the report says, forecast ridership numbers are even higher.
