Montreal, 18 June 2004 – In order to provide improved public transit services to businesses along Elmslie Street in LaSalle borough, the STM will modify the 195 – Sherbrooke/Notre-Dame bus route as of Monday, June 21, 2004.
Indeed, with a workforce of over 1300 employees, Intria Items has moved its operations to Elmslie Street. In a bid to encourage public transit use by these workers without penalizing current commuters, the STM will modify the 195 bus route to run along Elmslie and Dollard Avenue. To do so, LaSalle borough agreed to open up Elmslie Street on STM land occupied by its bus garage, so that service may be provided along that street.
This modification is a marked improvement in public transit in LaSalle borough, as it enables a large number of employees to make the most of STM services to commute to work.
