City officials have outlined what Montreal will look like in 26 years, highlighting an increase in rental units, green spaces, and more.

Mayor Valérie Plante revealed at a press conference on Tuesday that by 2050, Montreal will have several tramways and at least one Metro extension on the Blue Line. Plante envisions more pedestrian and bicycle travel on new year-round bike lanes, along with an expanded public transit network.

The city plans to be greener, with trees covering 40 percent of the territory.

In addition to expanding public transit and green spaces, Montreal aims to add 200,000 homes, with 20 percent designated as co-ops or social housing.

This plan follows years of public consultations and discussions about the city's future.
