Notice for users of the Deux-Montagnes train line operated by the Réseau de transport métropolitain (RTM)
Beginning on the evening of Friday, April 27, the STM wishes to inform its clientele about the options available to them on the Island of Montréal on weekends, namely regarding Roxboro-Pierrefonds and Sunnybrooke stations.
Montréal, April 25, 2018 – In the context of construction of the REM and interruptions of service on the RTM’s Deux-Montagnes line beginning on the evening of Friday, April 27, the Société de transport de Montréal (STM) wishes to inform its clientele about the options available to them on the Island of Montréal, aimed at minimizing the impact of the Deux-Montagnes train service disruptions.
For people on the West Island who use the Roxboro-Pierrefonds and Sunnybrooke stations, there are two recommended options:
- The temporary 968 Trainbus/Côte-Vertu shuttle provides a direct link (no in-between stops) between the Côte-Vertu station and Gouin Boulevard, west of highway A-13. Gouin Boulevard stops include the Roxboro-Pierrefonds and Sunnybrooke stations. The shuttle will operate from 8 p.m. Friday to Sunday (all day).
- The 470 Express Pierrefonds line provides direct service (no in-between stops) between the Côte-Vertu station and the Fairview terminus, and then continues along Saint-Jean and Pierrefonds boulevards. This service is provided via articulated buses.
For people who use other RTM stations, the bus and métro systems are available for all trips. Users are invited to consult the information tools available on the STM website, by clicking on the following link: http://www.stm.info.
The REM is an automated light métro project with four lines in the metropolitan region, serving downtown Montréal, the South Shore, the North Shore, the West Island and Montréal-Trudeau Airport. It will be integrated into the existing public transit systems to provide service adapted to user’s daily needs.
