Residents and workers in the Île-des-Sœurs area who did not get a chance to participate in the public consultation may do so during one month through an online survey as of May 1st.
Montréal, April 25, 2019 — Last night, as part of a meeting of the Customer Service and Universal Accessibility Committee of its board of directors, the Société de transport de Montréal (STM) held a public consultation on Île-des-Sœurs with residents and workers from the area. The purpose was to discuss proposed modifications to bus lines in connection to the arrival of the first REM station on the territory of Montréal in this area.
“The public consultation was the first in a series of consultations that will take place in different areas of the Island of Montréal over the next few years. The progression of the consultations will consider the gradual roll-out of major public transit projects, which will have a significant influence on the surface network, and major urban development projects. Citizen involvement has already been beneficial, and we thank our customers. Last fall, close to 19,000 people participated in the online public consultation called Design a network to fit your priorities,” says Philippe Schnobb, Chairman of the Board of Directors.

The bus network redesign will be deployed gradually from 2020 to 2026, based on the roll-out of major projects such as the REM, the Pie IX BRT and the extension of the métro’s Blue line. The redesign, which is one of the major initiatives of the STM’s 2025 Strategic Organizational Plan, will, in particular, connect the various modes of transportation, improving mobility for hundreds of thousands of customers and the customer experience on the Island of Montréal.
The online public consultation last fall aimed to assess four variables, namely travel time, frequency of service, walking distance and impact of transfers. The purpose was to better understand the relative importance of each variable in the eyes of the public.
