Montréal, July 4, 2016 – The Société de transport de Montréal (STM) is announcing added service on weekends for the Senneville shared taxibus as of next July 11, along with an additional stop. These measures follow in the wake of a new focus on improving the customer experience for Montrealers.
« This service enhancement is indeed very good news for Senneville residents, as they get to enjoy better access to public transit. This improvement in taxibus service is a result of the close working relationship we share with elected officials » stated Philippe Schnobb, chairman of STM’s board of directors.
« We are once again improving the offer of public transit service. This project is in line with our Administration’s objectives, namely in terms of enhancing public transportation services. West Island customers will benefit from this project, as it is yet another initiative that will help improve quality of life for Montrealers, » added Aref Salem, Montréal executive committee member responsible for transportation.
« City officials in Senneville are pleased with STM’s improved service for local residents. We have worked very hard with the STM for many years now, so that our citizens may enjoy accessible transit services. We thank the STM for their cooperation, » declared Jane Guest, mayor of Senneville.
The Senneville shared taxi service will now be available Monday to Sunday, at the same times. Rides without a prior reservation are only possible during weekday rush hour periods. Also, a new stop is being added at the corner of Cap-Saint-Jacques / Gouin, in an effort to facilitate transfers with the 68 – Pierrefonds bus, particularly for students attending Cégep Gérald-Godin.
The current route taken by the taxibus features stops along chemin Senneville making it possible to transfer on boulevard Gouin (68 – Pierrefonds bus), at Sainte-Anne-de-Bellevue commuter train station and at John-Abbott College bus terminus (200 – Sainte-Anne-de-Bellevue, 211 – Bord-du-Lac, 212 – Sainte- Anne, 405 – Express Bord-du-Lac and 411 – Express Lionel-Groulx bus lines). Customers must reserve a seat at 40 minutes in advance by calling 514 637-4444. No reservation is needed for some rush hour departure times, specifically for Charles River Laboratories’ employees on weekdays.
Remember that taxibus fares are the same as for the bus and métro system. To pay their fare, customers must show a valid STM fare card. Furthermore, eleven (11) other shared taxibus lines are also serving customers in these areas: Baie d’Urfé, L’Île-Bizard, Rue Norman (Lachine), Gare Lachine, Parc industriel Lachine/Gare Dorval, Quartier Sainte-Marie (Sainte-Anne-de-Bellevue), Technoparc Montréal (Saint-Laurent), Côte-Vertu Ouest, Gare Anjou – parc industriel, Gare Anjou – secteur résidentiel Rivière-des-Prairies and Gare Rivière-des-Prairies-Pointe-aux-prairies. The STM also operates three Navette Or taxi shuttles in Nuns Island, Dorval and Pointe Claire.
