Notice - Rerouted bike paths in 2019

Published on

Construction of the REM will cause obstructions along certain bike paths near the work sites. Here is a map of the detours planned for 2019.


Maisonneuve bike path - starting January 14, 2019

Due to the construction of the foundations for the REM’s future McGill station, traffic will be obstructed along a section of the bike path on Maisonneuve Boulevard West, between McGill College Avenue and Robert Bourassa Boulevard. This obstruction will be in effect from January 14, 2019 to fall 2019.

Bike path near Édouard-Montpetit - For the duration of the construction period

In preparation for the construction of the REM’s future Édouard Montpetit station, a portion of the bike path on Vincent D’Indy Avenue and Édouard Montpetit Boulevard has been rerouted to ensure the safety of all users. A two-way bike bath on Willowdale Avenue and a designated roadway on Stirling Avenue have been created and took effect on August 28, 2018.

Access to the REM stations: ideal for bicycles!

The future stations are designed to accommodate all types of access: pedestrians, cyclists, buses, car-pooling and car-sharing. The stations will have bicycle racks for cyclists (check out our interactive map to see the number of racks at each station). An agreement has also been reached with BIXI to conduct an analysis of the potential deployment of BIXI stations over the entire REM network.
