24 THE IETHBRIDGE HERALD Friday, Juno 26, 1970 Transit Systems Have Problems HALIFAX (CP) Canadian transit managers say the greatest problems they face are the loss of passengers and the lack of government interest. Canadian Transit Asso- ciation, holding its annual meet- ing here this week, reported a decrease of .7 per cent in pas- sengers carried by its '17 operat- ing members while operating expenses rose six per cent. But despite the bleak financial Population Will Doiililc REGINA (CP) The popu- lation of Regma is expected to double to between and in the next 30 years, the city planning department estimates. The department said that in the next five years the popula- tion should increase to between and from the present oullook, most city transit sys- tems plan to increase service and facilities. J. M. Trcmblay, vice-presi- dent of tire Montreal Urban Community Transit Commis- sion, said Wednesday the com- mission is sponsoring a "leave your car at home" campaign in newspapers and on television and radio in an effort to reverse a five-pcr-cent annual drop in customers. W. G. Atkinson, general man- ager of the Regina Transit Sys- tem, also is1 using an audio-vis- ual campaign "to tell people what transit does for the com- munity." We can compete with automo- IK said. "It is just a matter of education, informa- tion and marketing." Mr. Atkinson blamed transit managers in part for the de- crease in customers. A transit operation must "know who its customers are and what they expect from transit." REDUCES SERVICE Jean-Paul of Quebec-Autobus Ltd., said his company has reduced service to Quebec City residents because of the loss of passengers. "Eventually people will come back to Mr. Clavet said. D. R. Seymour, assistant gen- eral manager of Cornwall Street Railway Light and Power Co. Ltd., said government "has not yet faced the fact that transit is necessary', even in an auto-ori- ented society." Mr. Trembly said the federal government should provide grants for special transit studies. Hoy W. Church, manager of Winnipeg's transit operations, said the city plans to have by 1991 an inner beltway for auto- mobiles, a freeway leading to the downtown section and a cen- tral rapid transit system. Mr. Atkinson said Regina has plans for downtown integration of all transportation services serving the car, train and air. Other Regina plans call for a "diaJ-a-bus" system in areas of low population. A computer will register requests find dispatch buses according to demand. Mr. Trcmblay said1 Montreal plans to double its subway sys- tem within five years, from 16 miles to 32 miles. He said he ex- pects Calgary, Edmonton and Hamilton will develop subway systems in the near future.
