Transporting bicycles in the métro
Métro commuters 16 years old and over or accompanied by an adult can transport their bicycles from 10 am to 3 pm and after 7 pm from Monday to Friday as well as all day Saturday, Sunday and holidays, if they board the head car. For security reasons however, personnel can temporarily refuse access to anybody transporting a bicycle. This also applies during certain special events such as the fireworks, the Grand Prix, etc. Moreover, the STCUM would like to remind its ridership that at no time is in-line skating allowed in the métro or aboard buses.
To better plan their trips during this event, customers should dial their Telbus number. For additional information on these routes, call A-U-T-O-B-U-S (288-6287).
