STM Transit Information
Schedule changes for the Easter holiday
Montreal, 23 March 2005 - The Société de transport de Montréal (STM) would like to remind transit users that bus and métro schedules will be slightly modified during the long Easter weekend.
On Friday, March 25 and Monday, March 28, most buses will run according to either Saturday or Sunday timetables, or even follow a special schedule, while a few others will provide regular weekday service. Transit users are advised to check ahead of time. Most bus routes will maintain regular weekend service on Saturday, March 26 and Sunday, March 27. Also, because a number of religious activities and processions will be held in several Montréal neighbourhoods, buses could run late on a few routes.
As for the métro, on Friday, March 25 and Monday, March 28, trains will run every 8 minutes between 6:30 a.m. and 2 p.m., and every 7 minutes until 6 p.m. on the Green and Orange lines. Trains will run every 7 minutes between 6:30 a.m. and 7 p.m. on the Blue line. As for the Yellow line, trains will run according to the Sunday schedule from Good Friday to Easter Monday inclusively. Service levels on all métro lines will be adjusted, if needed.
When planning their transportation for the holiday weekend, transit users should consult either the Planibus or Infobus timetables or call A-U-T-O-B-U-S (288-6287) for schedule information at their stop. For any other information, including travel directions, they can call STM-INFO (786-4636). Updated bus timetables are now available on the STM’s website at www.stm.info and can be consulted up to seven days in advance.
