Actually, the people of the region have few alternatives, aside from buses and cars, both of which submit themselves to hazards of the road and the Mercier Bridge. According to Moreau, Chateauguay`s geographical aspect would play in its disfavour. « All the options studied were not attainable, notably because of the depth of the river (to cross) in the sector or the clearing necessary to build a cable-car system,`` he explained.
The commuter train, however, remains the most promising option, Moreau considers. ``We should continue to rely on this possibility,`` he says. ``It consists of an extremely efficient transport system which is not expensive to manage. This is because the train already passes through Kahnawake, and it would be sufficient to construct a boarding quai and a parking lot as an incentive. In addition, I think that the people of Kahnawake would be open to that,`` he let it be known. He admits, however, that he does not know where discussions stand in this matter. Discussions would be held, according to him, by a coming together of the main actors in the transportation file (Mobility Montreal).
