Traffic jams, public transit delays, eternal construction projects... it's all adding up to extremely long commutes for Montrealers. In fact, we have some of the longest commutes in North America. So what's the solution? We look at all the alternatives available for Montrealers including options that are better for the environment. We also ask the experts if there are new solutions on the horizon, or if we're all in this for the long haul.
