Mobility Montréal partners, which are responsible for implementing the mitigation measures related to the Réseau express métropolitain (REM), wish to inform users that measures will be implemented beginning on May 11 due to the closure of the Mont-Royal tunnel.
The service offer is temporarily reorganized due to a significant decrease in traffic on the road network and in ridership in public transport over the last weeks. Shuttle 404, which links the Deux-Montagnes station and downtown Montréal, will be in operation Monday to Friday from 5:30 a.m. to 11:30 p.m., including rush hours. This service, which is in addition to the other mitigation measures planned, may be revised at any time based on changes in traffic or ridership. This also applies to other services from public transportation organizations.
Considering the current situation with the COVID-19 pandemic, Mobility Montréal partners take all necessary precautions to minimize the spread of the virus and ensure safe transit for all users. Additionally, the ministère des Transports du Québec will soon announce the measures that apply to the public transit sector.
- Mitigation measures include new shuttles, temporary bus platform and terminal, additional reserved lanes and fare measures.
- Rail and bus shuttle, metro and bus schedules are available on the websites of exo, the Société de transport de Montréal (STM) and the Société de transport de Laval (STL).
- A task force co-led by the ministère des Transports and the Autorité régionale de transport métropolitain will meet on May 11 to review its activities on site and whether the mitigation measures related to public transit work. Task force members will make adjustments as needed to ensure that an efficient service is provided to users.
- The task force is no longer present on station platforms to minimize contacts with users. However, staff members from exo, the STM and the STL will be on site to ensure everything runs smoothly and make transit easier for shuttle users. Also, additional signage will be installed to help users, especially at the Bois-Franc station, the Côte-Vertu metro station and the Radisson terminal.
