River Shuttle - Pointe-aux-Trembles / Vieux-Port de Montréal
This summer, save time on the road and enjoy a relaxing moment on the beautiful St. Lawrence River. Returning this year for an extended period, the the River Shuttle pilot project provides a link between Old Pointe-aux-Trembles at the corner of Saint-Jean-Baptiste Boulevard and Bellerive Street in the Rivières-des-Prairies--Pointes-aux-Trembles borough, and Jacques-Cartier Pier in the Old Port of Montreal.
This pilot project will serve to gauge the interest of commuters and students in taking an alternative method of transportation into and out of the city, as well as fostering the development of eastern Montreal and the historic Vieux-Pointe-aux-Trembles neighborhood.
