The project

The Pie-IX Boulevard bus rapid transit service (BRT) is a high-performance public transportation project that is integrated into the reconstruction and upgrade of Pie-IX Boulevard. It will offer a rapid, reliable, comfortable, safe and universally accessible bus service between eastern Laval and Montréal.

Work schedule

  • Construction begins: November 2018
  • Service in operation: Fall 2022

The Pie-IX BRT project has three parts

  • Complete refurbishment of municipal infrastructure
  • Improvement of public property
Texte importantThe Pie-IX BRT will have 17 stations (15 in Montréal and two in Laval), spread out over 11 km of Pie-IX Boulevard between Saint-Martin Boulevard in Laval and Pierre-De Coubertin Avenue in Montréal. Expected to be up and running in 2022, it will serve more than 70,000 customers a day.

The Pie-IX BRT will offer a frequency comparable to that of the métro during peak periods.

Reconstruction of Pie-IX Boulevard

The City of Montréal will use the BRT project to upgrade its water and sewer networks, which are currently at the end of their useful lives. The City will reconstruct the foundation, road, sidewalks and grass medians of Pie-IX Boulevard between Henri-Bourassa Boulevard and Pierre-De Coubertin Avenue.

The project will improve residents’ surroundings by planting several hundred trees, widening sidewalks, refurbishing the road, medians and lighting, and installing new traffic lights. The improvements will create a multifunctional environment where public transportation will be an important part of residents’ travel habits.

Information evenings were held in 2018 and February 2019 (see presentations below). The purpose of these sessions was to present the project as a whole, the detailed phasing of the work and the planned mitigation measures. These presentations were followed by a question and discussion period with the citizens and the project team.


Presentations (in French only):

In the spring of 2017, to answer the concerns expressed by shops, industries and institutions, the integrated project bureau set up the Comité d'affaires SRB Pie-IX (Pie-IX BRT business committee).

Minutes of meetings (in French only):

Presentations (in French only):

Good neighbours committees were formed. The committees give Pie-IX Boulevard residents a chance to meet periodically during the work to receive up-to-date information and share their concerns. This ongoing cooperation is aimed at minimizing or avoiding negative impacts of the work on citizens and maximizing positive benefits.
