Carifiesta on July 2
Montreal, June 30 2005 - As the Carifiesta parade will be held in the streets of Montréal, some of the STM’s bus routes will be modified on Saturday July 2.
As a result, there will be no service at all on both the 15 – Sainte-Catherine and 150 – Ren�-L�vesque bus lines from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. The following bus routes will also be deviated throughout the day, as indicated, either for the parade or for the Jazz Festival.
Bicycles in the métro
As the Carifiesta parade and fireworks display in the evening are expected to generate a significant increase in métro ridership, no bicycles will be allowed inside the métro from 11 a.m. till closing.
The STM recommends that métro users purchase their return ticket ahead of time, to avoid waiting in line, as ridership levels are usually much heavier after an event than before.
When planning their transportation to any of these events, transit users should consult their Planibus or Infobus panel, or call A-U-T‑O-B-U-S (288-6287) for bus schedules at their stop. For other information, including travel directions, please call STM●INFO (786-4636). Bus timetables updated according to daily events are now available up to seven days in advance from the STM website at www.stm.info, ase well as more useful transit information.
