Network improvements

In our 2018 budget

We have put you at the centre of our priorities, with improvements to service and to your customer experience. Here’s how.

Métro

This year, we will increase service by 3.4%, thanks to the addition of nearly 3 million trip km, to 88.1 million km. Concretely this means the service every 5 minutes on weekday evenings up to 10:30 p.m., already offered on the Orange, Green and Blue lines, will also be offered on the Yellow line starting in June. This service every 5 minutes will also be offered from 3 p.m. to 10:30 p.m. on weekends on the Green, Orange and Yellow lines, beginning this summer.

Bus

You will be offered 81,000 additional hours of service, for a total of 5.3 million hours. Some sectors will benefit from special attention, such as Rivière-des-Prairies - Pointe-aux-Trembles and Griffintown. 

Other measures to improve customer experience

Among the other measures seeking to improve your customer experience are:

  • putting 18 AZUR trains into service, for a total of 52 trains, with 8% additional capacity on each train;
  • replacement of 100 diesel buses with new air conditioned hybrid buses;
  • installation of 217 additional new bus shelters, bringing the number to 1331 new bus shelters, 120 of them interactive;
  • addition of nine stations connected to the cell phone network on the Orange and Blue lines, increasing the number to 50 stations;
  • putting elevators into service at the du Collège and Honoré-Beaugrand stations.
