Several station closures on the Blue line on Sunday, April 30, 2023 From 5:30 a.m. to 7 p.m.


Due to constraints related to accessibility work at Édouard-Montpetit station and the location of the track switches required to turn trains around, the STM must exceptionally close Acadie, Outremont, Édouard-Montpetit, Université-de-Montréal, Côte-des-Neiges and Snowdon (Blue line only) métro stations, from 5:30 a.m. to 7 p.m. on Sunday, April 30.

The Blue line will stay open between Parc and Saint-Michel stations. The Orange line will also be open at Snowdon station, allowing customers to travel to Jean-Talon station.

To serve customers during these exceptional closures, the STM will offer a shuttle service—the 809 shuttle—every 15 minutes from 5:30 a.m. to 7 a.m. and every 10 minutes from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. It will run between Snowdon and Jean-Talon stations, which are both accessible. The shuttle will stop at each Blue line métro station and provide round-trip service.

To view possible bus routes, we encourage customers to uncheck the “métro” tab on our trip planner, which is available on our website and mobile apps.

About the accessibility project at Édouard-Montpetit station

This project includes the installation of two elevators to make the station accessible. The Édouard-Montpetit entrance building will also be expanded to make room for a staircase, two fare collection turnstiles and an elevator connecting all levels on the St-Michel side. A second elevator will be installed on the north side connecting the walkway and platform levels on the Snowdon side. Click here for more information about the project.

About the accessibility of the métro network

The métro network currently has 26 accessible stations. There are five other accessibility projects underway in métro stations. The STM aims to have made 30 stations accessible by 2025. The Accessibility program is made possible through the additional funding announced by the federal and provincial governments to speed up accessibility work.
