Better and more frequent service

  We’re adding two new rush-hour high-frequency lines, allowing time gains to even more customers in these areas:

  Verdun

  Airlie

  Faster, more direct access to the métro and downtown, making it easy to reach the city centre and major transit networks.

  Clearer, more simple and straightforward bus routes, so picking the best travel option is a breeze.

  A redesigned network that simplifies travel between boroughs, improving local bus service.

The following bus lines will now serve the area: 

  • 61 Wellington
  • 107 Verdun (this bus line will become a rush-hour high-frequency line and its route will be extended to LaSalle)
  • 112 Airlie (this bus line will become a rush-hour high-frequency line)

More information:

This change will improve high-frequency bus service in southeast LaSalle, with the 107 Verdun (which will run in the Crawford area and on Champlain Boulevard) and the 112 Airlie (via Centrale Street) providing complementary service.

By running on Centrale Street, the 112 will be easily accessible to customers on Broadway and Édouard Streets (less than 300 metres away). The 107’s new route also includes stops at Cégep André-Laurendeau and Place LaSalle and provides better access to the métro network (Verdun, Line 1 – Green and Square-Victoria-OACI, Line 2 – Orange). Customers on Broadway will be able to use both the 112 and 107 buse lines.

In Verdun, with Wellington Street going car-free every summer - causing detours - and being less centrally located compared to de Verdun Street, we decided to route the high-frequency lines along de Verdun Street. This will make the 107 easily available to customers on both Wellington (also served by the 61) and Bannantyne, since de Verdun Street is less than 300 metres from both. The direct connection to Verdun métro station will be maintained.

Frequently asked questions

No. The bus network redesign affects daytime service only.

 

Despite our best efforts to optimize service, the reality is that changing a bus network as big as the STM’s will make some trips more efficient and others less so.

In some cases, that might mean a longer walk or an extra bus transfer. However, our current network usage data indicates that the redesign will benefit six times more trips than it will inconvenience.

Most bus shelters of stops relocated in the redesign will be moved elsewhere in the area. That said, since there are many bus shelters that need to be relocated, and it’s a technically complex process (pour the concrete slabs, hook up the electricity, etc.), some bus shelters will not be replaced until after the launch of the redesign in late August 2024.

The delivery schedule and plans for that REM station, including access to it, have not yet been published by CDPQ Infra. The STM is working closely with the project teams involved to make sure the local bus network will be able to connect to the REM.

What’s the bus network redesign project?

We’re redesigning the bus network, sector by sector, to make it even more appealing and efficient. The redesign takes into account Montréal’s major public transit projects, mobility needs, and urban development.

Through public consultations, our own research, and collaboration with our partners, we’re developing bus routes that better meet the expectations and travel needs of our community.
