Montréal metro expands to Laval

AMTLogo

Greater Montreal area transportation [1] is in the increase with the extension of metro line 2– Orange now reaching the island of Laval serving three new metro stations: Cartier, de la Concorde and Montmorency.

The extension built by the AMT and operated by the SMT is considered the most important transit project of the last few years. And the fact that the final cost $745 million (€514 million) was down from the initial estimate of $803 million (€554 million) adds to the success of the operation, bringing the amount of works to $143 million (€98.7) per km which is below the international average.

The extension also triggered the redesign of the bus routes network with a view to better converge upon the three new stations. STL the bus operator actually offers a 18% increase provision with a number of routes raising from 34 to 40.
