Montreal, August 21, 2003 With Molson Indy Montreal being held August 22, 23 and 24 on �Zle Notre-Dame, the STM will beef up métro service over the weekend. Indeed, trains on the 4 Yellow line will run every 4 to 5 minutes, from early morning to late evening (tll half past midnight Saturday). Service will be ajusted to meet with demand on the 1 Green and 2 Orange lines.
The métro is still the best way to reach the racing site, and the STM suggests fans purchase their return ticket ahead of time to avoid line-ups. For $14, they can buy a three-day Tourist Pass, giving them unlimited access to public transit during all Molson Indy Montreal activities.
As large numbers of fans are expected to use the métro to attend racing events, access to the métro system with a bicycle will be forbidden until 9 p.m. on August 22, 23 and 24.
Bus service ajustments
Transit users are invited to call the TELBUS number featured on their bus stop panel when planning their transportation during those three days. For trip information (Montreal Island only), please call A-U-T-O-B-U-S (288-6287). More useful information can be found on the STMs Website at www.stm.info.
