Bicycles in the métro
Bicycles will be allowed in the métro network on the day of the parade, unless otherwise specified due to heavy ridership.
The STM recommends that métro users purchase their return tickets ahead of time to avoid waiting in line, as ridership levels are much higher after an event than before.
