Mount Pearl is pretty dense, so in a way they could have a very efficient transit system. However, for it's relatively small population base and high car numbers, a big investment for its own transit may be a waste of money. Idealy Metrobus would be scrapped in favor of a regional bus service, but a more realistic approach here would be for Mount Pearl to increase investment in Metrobus services. I know the city isn't pleased with the service they get (2 busses for a population center of 25,000) but they're essentially getting what they pay for. Maybe they could pay a bit extra for a few extra routes, including maybe some that only run in the Mount Pearl area, and not in a circle from the Village through the city? I'm sure St. John's wouldn't mind, as long as Mount Pearl was fronting the bill for the Mount Pearl-only bus routes.
