Integrated PIE-IX BRT Project

Integrated PIE-IX BRT Project

The integrated Pie-IX BRT project will provide an efficient, reliable, comfortable and safe bus rapid transit (BRT) service along Pie-IX Boulevard in eastern Laval and Montréal.

The Autorité régionale de transport métropolitain (ARTM), the City of Montréal and their partners have joined forces to implement this new mode of transportation, upgrade the municipal infrastructure and redesign public property.

New Public Transport

The Pie-IX BRT will consist of 17 stations (15 in Montréal and 2 in Laval) spread out over 11 km of Pie-IX Boulevard, between Saint-Martin Boulevard in Laval and Pierre-De Coubertin Avenue in Montréal. In 2022, the Pie-IX BRT will supply 70,000 passenger rides per day.

Pie-IX Boulevard Reconstruction

The City of Montréal will take advantage of the BRT construction to upgrade its water and sewer systems that have reached the end of their useful lives, and to reconstruct the foundation, roadway, sidewalks and medians on Pie-IX Boulevard between Henri-Bourassa Boulevard and Pierre-De-Coubertin Avenue.

Public Property Redesign

This project will improve residents’ surroundings by planting hundreds of trees, widening sidewalks and refurbishing medians. The road surface, street lamps and traffic lights will also be upgraded.

This beautification will create a multi-functional environment where public transit is an important part of residents’ travel habits.


Start of construction works: Fall of 2018

Commissioning: Fall of 2022
