City of Montréal and STM announce new reserved lanes for 2023


The City of Montréal and the Société de transport de Montréal (STM) announced today the adoption of the commissioning of new reserved lanes in 2023, as part of its regular program of bus priority measures (BPM), at the City’s Executive Committee.

Four new reserved lanes will be introduced: Chemin de la Côte-Saint-Luc (Côte-des-Neiges–Notre-Dame-de-Grâce), two sections on Saint-Laurent Boulevard (Ahuntsic-Cartierville and Villeray–Saint-Michel–Parc-Extension), Provost Street (Lachine) and Sherbrooke Street West (Côte-des-Neiges–Notre-Dame-de-Grâce).

“Following the adoption of our annual program of bus priority measures in 2023, I am pleased that four new reserved lanes have been confirmed on Saint-Laurent, Provost, Côte-Saint-Luc and Sherbrooke Street West, respectively, in Notre-Dame-Grâce,” says Éric Alan Caldwell, Chair of the STM Board of Directors. “I would like to remind everyone that these initiatives serve to improve the performance of our bus network by providing it with dedicated infrastructures and an enhanced customer experience. Adding reserved lanes on these streets for buses and certain other modes of transportation, such as bicycles and taxis, will contribute to smoother traffic and more punctual buses.”
