Bicycles in the métro
Subject to certain rules and regulations, bringing your bicycle in the métro will be allowed while the cyclothon is being held. Children and teens under 16 years of age must be accompanied by an adult. Participants carrying their bicycle can only travel aboard the first train car and must respect the 4-bicyle limit. They must give way to regular transit users, without hindering the flow of travellers or compromising their safety. Should an emergency require the evacuation of a train, the bicycles must be left behind.
The STM would like to remind everyone that riding a bicycle, using a foot scooter or a skateboard, and rollerblading inside a métro station is forbidden at all times.
