Other projects underway on the STM's territory
The Réseau express métropolitain (REM) has begun building its future Édouard-Montpetit station. The new station will be located at the site of the Marie-Victorin entrance building.
Before demolishing the entrance building, we will close it to recover equipment such as:
- Light fixtures
- Butterfly doors
- Wall finishes
The above equipment will be used for maintaining métro system facilities.
The station’s two other entrances will remain open. For your safety, use the entrance located at the corner of Vincent D’Indy Avenue and Édouard-Montpetit Boulevard.
Did you know that...?
The new station will connect to the Montréal métro’s Blue line and will be one of the deepest stations in North America.
Implementation of Trainbus 968 to make up for weekend service interruptions on the Deux-Montagnes line.
Service is suspended on Fridays and weekends.
A new, temporary shuttle service called 968 Trainbus/Côte-Vertu shuttle provides a direct link (non-stop) between Côte-Vertu métro station and the stops on Gouin Boulevard, west of highway A‑13. These stops include the Roxboro-Pierrefonds and Sunnybrooke train stations.
The shuttle service starts at the Roxboro-Pierrefonds station as of 8 p.m. on Fridays and weekends.
What if the shuttle doesn’t go near my home?
