Queensway Station 2A relocation

Stations: Queensway

Date effective: December 19, 2021

From Sunday, December 19, the east-side of the Transitway at Queensway Station, platform, and amenities (stairwells and elevators) will be closed. The two southbound lanes of the Transitway will be converted to one northbound lane and one southbound lane to facilitate Stage 2 construction.

Following this closure, Queensway Station 2A will be permanently relocated 60 metres north of the Queensway Overpass.

For pedestrians, all access to the relocated 2A platform will be from the west-side of the Transitway, via the Multi-Use Pathway. There will then be an at-grade and stop-controlled crossing on the Transitway to the relocated stop. The stairwells and elevators on the west-side of the station will remain open for access to the upper level.

The southbound elevator on the west side of Queensway Station is out of service for unforeseen maintenance. 
 

Queensway Station SB elevator # 4:
The southbound elevator on the west side of Queensway Station is out of service for unforeseen maintenance. We expect the elevator to be out of service for a few days and regret any inconvenience this may cause.

Customers requiring the use of an elevator to access another platform may be to use the one at the other end of the platform. For example:  if you are getting off on the lower westbound platform and require access to the upper westbound platform, you will need to go to the other elevator on the westbound platform, take the elevator to the upper level, go to the other end of the platform and take the elevator down. Once down, go to the other end of the platform and take the elevator back up to the upper westbound platform.

For Travel Planning assistance, please call 613-560-5000 or press the free “Info” button on any Bell telephone in the station. For emergency assistance, use the nearest yellow emergency callbox.

Improvements to bus stops as Montréal Road reopens

Routes: 15, 20, 615, 616

Date effective: October 21, 2022

Friday, October 21 at 6:30 pm, the Montréal Road Revitalization Project will be complete and eastbound Montréal Road between the Vanier Parkway and St-Laurent Boulevard will reopen. Routes 15, 20, 615, and 616 will no longer be detoured. They will return to regular routing with some changes to the bus stops they serve. 

Many bus stops have been improved with new shelters and benches. There are also plans to install digital transit information screens that display real-time next bus departure times.

Some bus stops along Montréal Road are being combined or relocated. Any temporary bus stops used during the duration of the Montréal Road Revitalization Project detour will be removed.

These bus stop changes are in response to customer feedback. They aim to improve travel times, service reliability, accessibility, and customer comfort.
