Better Bus Stops Project: St. Laurent Blvd. stop location changes

Better Bus Stops Project banner

We are reviewing the stop locations on some major roads and want to know what you think.

The changes will provide customers who travel along the affected corridors with:

  • Faster travel times
  • More reliable trips
  • A smoother ride

St. Laurent Boulevard

On April 22, we redistributed stops on St. Laurent Blvd., between Elmvale and Walkley. These changes make trips on Routes 40, 48 and 49 faster, smoother and more reliable. We want to know what you think about the new stop locations and how they affect your trips.

Walking distances to bus stops

The piloted bus stop changes are in keeping with our target to provide access to transit within a 400 m (or 5-minute) walk.

  • Some customers will have a slightly shorter walk
  • Some customers will have a slightly longer walk

Accessibility

This spring asphalt pads will be added at the new bus stops to improve accessibility. The pilot removes some stops that were located on uneven surfaces.

Customer safety

All bus stops along the corridor benefit from streetlights on St-Laurent Blvd. The stop changes will encourage the use of stops in highly visible locations with amenities like benches and shelters.

McArthur Avenue

Starting May 20, we will redistribute stops along McArthur Ave. The changes will make trips on Route 14 faster, smoother and more reliable. We are also looking at the possibility of adding a shelter to relocated stop #8662, at the corner of McArthur and Moorvale. This stop will move east, to just after Moorvale. We want to know what you think about the new stop locations and how they will affect your trips.

These stop changes will be made at the same time as cycling infrastructure improvements on McArthur. We are coordinating the work to reduce the impact to our customers.
