It’s a fact, the number of construction sites is rising in Montréal, and that situation is complicating matters regarding traffic all over the island. This are the steps we are taking to lessen the impact.
First, Transport adapté staff keeps track of work progress with the city of Montréal and the ministère des Transports, de la Mobilité durable et de l’Électrification des transports. When road works are expected to last more than a few weeks, we look at the best options to avoid the area.
We increase the number of vehicles on the road and adjust travel times. We also adjust how passenger trips are matched together to maintain a comparable level of service despite increased traffic congestion.
In spite of any and all precautions we may take, travel times spent aboard vehicles could potentially be longer because of construction site obstacles and the traffic jams they create. Transport adapté staff is well aware of the inconveniences these road works will likely cause you and is working hard to lessen them.
In the near future, locating and regulating vehicles in realtime will enable us to improve the experience for customers by giving us the tools to prevent vehicles from being delayed.
