In addition to its advantageous geographic location, the
Saint-Laurent community benefits from an excellent supply with respect to public
transit services. Accordingly, residents have access to two Metro stations and
three stations serving the Montréal/Deux-Montagnes commuter train line. This
means that it is possible to reach downtown Montréal, the North Shore or the
South Shore in a matter of just a few minutes.
Moreover, its streets and main arteries, including Côte-Vertu and
Henri-Bourassa boulevards, are served by several bus lines that run continuously
during rush hour.
Finally, the Communauto car sharing service and the BIXI self-serve bicycle
service have made inroads and will continue to thrive in the coming years.
Saint-Laurent sets an example
In its Local Transportation Plan, Saint-Laurent places a great deal of
emphasis on public and active transit, making these one of the three main axes
in the Plan. Among the intervention strategies devised along these lines, the
Borough intends to increase its public transit supply and foster the use of car
sharing, and to focus on effective transit management.
