SRB Sauvé / Côte-Vertu

Since April 2019, we work on implementing a bus rapid transit service on Sauvé Street and Côte-Vertu Boulevard. Spanning 4.7 kilometres between Décarie and Berri Streets, the 121 Sauvé/Côte-Vertu line will include priority traffic lights between the two métro stations and a reserved lane operating seven days a week, 24 hours a day. The BRT service is expected to be up and running in 2020.

The work will be carried out in partnership with the City of Montréal to group together operations within the same period and reduce impacts on nearby residents and vehicle traffic.

The Sauvé/Côte-Vertu corridor is very busy. The future 4.7 kilometre BRT will allow approximately 40,000 customers who use the 121 Sauvé/Côte-Vertu line to reduce their travel times by between 10% to 20% compared to current trip times.

This bus rapid transit service will be reserved for buses only and the lanes will operate 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

The bus service will be maintained at all times during the work. Some bus stops will be relocated or removed depending on the phases of the work.

  • Traffic will continue to circulate at all times. The number of lanes may be reduced and the corridor may be temporarily reconfigured, depending on the phases of the work.  
  • Some parking spaces will be removed.

Work related to the BRT implementation is financed by the Ministère des Transport du Québec. The City of Montreal will also finance part of the project according to the nature of the work.
