FAQ

A number of criteria influence the order in which stations undergo accessibility work to maximize the allocated budget.

  • Stations with “low” technical complexity are prioritized. These are shorter-term construction sites and cost less. The result is an increase in accessible stations.
  • The geographic distribution of the stations in the system requires special attention to ensure equal service to the different Montréal neighbourhoods.
  • Transfer and terminus stations are also prioritized due to their strategic positions.
  • The proximity to schools, healthcare institutions and inter-city bus terminals is also taken into consideration.
  • The opportunity to pair an elevator installation project with another infrastructure project is also considered, if the station in question fulfils other criteria.

Adding elevators inside stations that were not designed for them to begin with poses quite a challenge. Sometimes we have to acquire new land, modify zoning, expand existing buildings, refit equipment, and more.

* This work is made possible through funding from the Ministry of Transport, Sustainable Mobility and Transportation Electrification.  

** The Accessibility program is made possible thanks to additional funding announced by the federal and provincial governments for the purpose of speeding up work on universal access and making the métro system fully accessible by 2038.
