Montréal, December 23, 2011 - As the Louis-Hippolyte La Fontaine tunnel will be closed until December 24 at 11 p.m., the STM invites the public to make every effort to use the métro instead.
In light of the situation, it has also increased service on the Yellow line, by putting 9-car trains at the disposal of transit users, instead of the usual 6-car trains. During rush hour on Thursday, the Yellow line was operating at 70% capacity, before dropping to 40% during off-peak periods. The STM is therefore able to handle even greater numbers of passengers, making it easier for commuters at this time.
