Bicycles in the métro
During the event, bringing a bicycle in the metro will be allowed under certain conditions. Children and teens under 14 years of age must be accompanied by an adult. Participants carrying their bicycle can travel aboard the first train car and their number is limited to four. They must always give way to regular transit users, without hindering the flow of travellers or compromising their safety. Should an emergency require the evacuation of a train, bicycles must be left behind.
The STM reminds everyone that riding a bicycle, using a foot scooter or a skateboard, and rollerblading inside a métro station is forbidden at all times.
