Montreal, 10 March 2005 -
The Société de transport de Montréal (STM) reminds transit users that
several bus routes will be deviated for varying periods next Sunday, March
13, 2005, for the Saint-Patrick Day parade held in the streets of downtown
The following bus routes will also be modified during the following periods:
Everyone attending the parade is invited to use the métro. Trains will be added on the 1 – Green and 2 – Orange lines for the occasion. Also, because ridership levels are usually heavier after an event than before, the STM recommends that parade-goers purchase their return ticket ahead of time.
When planning their transportation to this event, transit users should call A-U-T-O-B-U-S (288-6287) for schedule information at their bus stop. For any other transit information, please call STM-INFO (786-4636). More useful information can also be found on the STM’s website at www.stm.info.
