Sauvé / Côte-Vertu BRT
Spanning 4.7 kilometres, the BRT service is running along Sauvé Street and Côte-Vertu Boulevard between Décarie and Berri. Occasional work may take place in 2022 in order to fully finalize the project.
The 121 Sauvé/Côte-Vertu line have priority traffic lights between the two métro stations and a reserved lane operating 24 hours a day, seven days a week. The BRT service allow those who travel along this busy corridor daily to reduce their travel times by 10% to 20%.
Since 2019, the work was carried out in partnership with the City of Montréal to combine other work within the same period and reduce impacts on nearby residents and vehicle traffic.

The Sauvé / Côte-Vertu corridor is very busy. The future 4.7 kilometre BRT service will allow approximately 40,000 customers who use the 121 Sauvé / Côte-Vertu line to reduce their travel times by 10% to 20% compared to current trip times.
This BRT service will be reserved for buses only and the lanes will operate 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
The terracotta color is used when we wish to emphasize to vehicles and residents that the lanes are reserved for buses at all times. These lanes are therefore reserved lanes for buses operating 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
Work related to the implementation of the BRT is financed by the Ministère des Transports du Québec. The City of Montréal will also finance part of the project depending on the nature of the work.
