New express bus route to Nuns’ Island

480 route

On Wednesday evening, the STM’s board of directors approved the creation of a new express bus route serving Nuns’ Island. According to Le Magazine Ile-des-Soeurs, the line will be numbered 480, and will go between Lucien L’Allier station (Mountain and de la Gauchetière), down René Lévesque and University to the new Bell headquarters at the north end of Nuns’ Island, a 15-minute trip in each direction. The route, which will run toward the island during the morning rush hour and toward downtown in the evening (making it the only express bus that travels away from downtown in the morning), is expected to serve 1300 passengers starting in September.
