Canada Day July 1st
Modifications to bus and métro service
Montreal, 29 June 2004 – Because of the Canada Day parade being held in the streets of Montreal, some of the STM’s bus routes will be modified next Thursday July 1st, 2004.
As such, service will be suspended on both the 15 – Sainte-Catherine bus line between 9 a.m. and 1:30 p.m., and the 150 – Ren�-L�vesque from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. The following bus routes will also be slightly modified at one time or another, between 9:30 a.m. and 1:30 p.m.: 57, 66, 107, 165 and 166.
In the métro, trains will be added on the 2 – Orange line, and service will be adjusted as needed on the 1 – Green and 4 – Yellow lines.
Bicycles in the métro
Because this event generates a significant increase in métro ridership, no bicycles will be allowed inside the métro from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.
The STM recommends that métro users purchase their return ticket ahead of time, to avoid waiting in line, as ridership levels are usually much heavier after such an event than before.
Service on Thursday July 1st
Both bus and métro networks will provide weekend service levels on Thursday, July 1st, with buses running according to either Saturday or Sunday schedules. Transit users should call A-U-T-O-B-U-S (288-6287) when planning their transportation to this event. For any other information, please call STM-INFO (786-4636).
