Street harassment: stop it. Witnesses, take action.
Two out of three people say they have experienced street harassment in Montréal.* For both targets and witnesses, street harassment has an impact on quality of life in public spaces. The City of Montréal, the Service de police de la Ville de Montréal (SPVM) and the Société de transport de Montréal (STM) are working together to fight street harassment by sharing five simple, specific things witnesses can do that make all the difference to targets of street harassment.

Boarding bus via all doors
Boarding through all doors is now allowed on articulated buses, at stops located at métro stations, under certain conditions.
Travelling with animals
As part of a new pilot project, dogs are allowed in the métro under certain conditions. Dogs will not be allowed on buses or paratransit vehicles.
Animals other than dogs must at all times be kept in a cage or closed carrier designed for that purpose.
Guide dogs and service dogs
All customers are allowed to be accompanied by a guide dog or service dog required for a disability. This applies at all times and in the whole network, including bus, métro and paratransit.
Customers with functional limitations travel needs
Making travel easier for customers with functional limitations: that's society in motion.
