If you take the Orange line in the morning, you know it can be hard to get a spot on the train, especially between Beaubien and Berri-UQAM. That’s why we’re implementing Mouvement orange, a set of measures to help residents of this key area of the city get downtown. Here’s what’s in store this fall, effective August 26.
The new 445 Express Papineau line
The 445 will operate during peak periods, with westbound service in the morning and eastbound service in the evening, to take you straight downtown and back.
Improvements and redesign
Redesign of the 435 Express du Parc/Côte-des-Neiges line
The 435 will be divided into two new buses to provide more regular service. These new buses, the 480 Express du Parc and the 465 Express Côte-des-Neiges, will start running on August 26. Like the local 80 and 165 buses of the same names, these new Express buses will operate during peak periods, with southbound service in the morning and northbound service in the evening.
Improvements to key bus lines
Service will be increased on the 427 Express Saint-Joseph, the 80 du Parc and the 165 Côte-des-Neiges lines.
More métro service
Two AZUR trains will be added during peak periods as well as the number of trains leaving from Henri‑Bourassa station (not Montmorency) that will be increased to nine.
