The Toronto region faces major challenges in building suitable transit infrastructure for its growing population. It isn’t alone. On October 18, 2016, the Ryerson City Building Institute partnered with the Consulate General of France in Toronto to host an event featuring guest panellists from Île-de-France Regional Transit (which includes Paris), Montreal’s Agence Métropolitane de Transport, and Ontario’s Metrolinx. This paper offers a comparison of three transit systems–those of Paris, Toronto, and Montreal–based on this event.
