The STM is announcing a service enhancement to three bus lines as of June 18.
Montréal, June 11, 2018 – The Société de transport de Montréal (STM) is announcing a service enhancement to three bus lines as of June 18.
419 – Express John Abbott
The STM will extend service on the 419 – Express John Abbott line to Saturdays and Sundays during the summer only, like last summer, but with longer service hours. This will provide customers with average intervals of 30 minutes between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m. and offer users from the West Island access to the Ecomuseum Zoo from the Fairview terminus, with a stop on Chemin Sainte-Marie in each direction. Furthermore, the 419 will go all the way to the MacDonald terminus during this period to facilitate connections for customers.
209 – Des Sources
The 209 will now be operating on weekends. This additional service will provide customers with average intervals of 25 minutes between 7 a.m. and 9 p.m., on Saturdays and Sundays, making public transit more accessible for current and potential customers in the West Island. Transit will be improved mainly along the Des Sources corridor to facilitate transportation to Dorval and the Pierre-Elliott-Trudeau airport and connection from the Dorval train station to the West Island’s east-west lines.
Service to Mont-Royal
As of June 18, the 711 Parc-du-Mont-Royal/Oratoire line will again run seven days a week over the summer and two bus stops will be added at the entrance to Notre-Dame-des-Neiges cemetery and at the “Soleil” lookout, created as part of the Pilot project to stop transit traffic for private vehicles on Voie Camillien Houde and on Chemin Remembrance. During the pilot project, Mont-Royal Park will remain accessible by public transit via the 711 and also the 11 Parc-du-Mont-Royal/Ridgewood line, which will operate at all times.
These improvements are made each season to improve customer experience. They will be announced progressively for the entire territory of the Island of Montréal.
