The Pie-IX BRT is a leading, high-performance public transit project, integrating the rehabilitation of municipal infrastructures and the reconstruction of Pie-IX Boulevard. It is also a public transit infrastructure spread across 13 km, between Saint-Martin Boulevard in Laval and Notre-Dame East street, including 44 BRT bus shelters and bus priority lights in real time. The Pie-IX BRT service launched in November 2022, from Saint-Martin Boulevard in Laval to Pierre-De Coubertin Avenue in Montréal. The BRT shelters at Jean-Talon and Bélanger will be commissioned in late 2023, due to the ongoing construction work on the pedestrian tunnel from the Pie-IX BRT to the future Blue Line extension métro station. The Pierre-De Coubertin BRT shelters and the reserved lanes on the Pie-IX Bridge will also be ready in 2023, once the work at Pie-IX station has been completed. Also work has begun on the extension that has been announced between Pierre-De Coubertin Avenue and Notre-Dame Street East.
