Pre-Project Study // Trolleybus Technology Survey for Montreal's STM

Saint-Jerome, January 9, 2012

The Societe de Transport de Montreal (STM) has selected SNC Lavalin and his partner CNTA to complete a pre-project study on implementation of Trolleybuses in Montreal. In this study, the CNTA will supply a survey of manufacturers, latest models analysis and preliminary dimensions of an electric auxiliary power unit (APU) to give the 60 ft. vehicles a 100% electric range when disconnected form the catenaries.

The study is expected at the end of the calendar year of 2012, allowing the STM to complete an eventual project for Montreal 375th anniversary in 2017.
