Schedule changes for the Easter holiday
Montreal, March 20, 2008 - The Société de transport de Montréal (STM) would like to remind transit users that bus, métro and public taxi timetables will be slightly modified during the long Easter weekend.
On Friday, March 21, and Monday, March 24, 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. Most bus routes will maintain regular weekend service on Saturday, March 22, and Sunday, March 23. Also, because a number of religious activities and processions will be held in several Montréal neighbourhoods, buses could run late on a few routes on Good Friday.
Public taxi services will not be available on either Friday, the 21st, or Monday, the 24th of March.
As for the métro, on Friday, March 21, and Monday, March 24, trains will run every 8 minutes between 6:30 a.m. and 12 noon., and then every 6 minutes until 7 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 on both Good Friday and Easter Monday. On both these days, service will be provided by six-car trains on both the Yellow and Blue lines. Regular weekend service will be offered on both Saturday, March 22, and Sunday, March 23. Service levels on all lines will be adjusted, if needed.
When planning their transportation for the long Easter weekend, transit users should consult either the Planibus or Infobus timetables or call A-U-T-O-B-U-S (514 288-6287) for schedule information at their stop. For any other information, including travel directions, they can call STM-INFO (514 786-4636). 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.
