Measures to ease congestion at Montreal Airport

Montreal Airport (ADM) is counting on free parking, two new sidewalks and better public transportation access to ease traffic at Montreal Airport.

Abu Dhabi Automobiles Company explained, in a press release published today, Wednesday, that the goal of these procedures, which will be gradually deployed by the summer of 2024, is to remove up to 700 vehicles per hour during peak periods towards the main landing stage at the airport.

Alternate landing stages

Two landing stages will be available to the east and west of the terminal and a shuttle service will be offered to passengers every five minutes. “These buses will take a route that avoids congestion and the journey time will be approximately 5 minutes,” ADM confirmed.

Parking

ADM said parking will be free for a limited time in all parking lots.

In addition, the parking fee schedule is being reviewed for the “next summer season.” The multi-level car park (P4) will open at the beginning of the year, which will add 2,800 spaces to the current offer.

Mass transportation

While the frequency of Line 747 has already been increased by the Regional Metropolitan Transport Authority (ARTM) and Société de Téléphone de Montréal (STM), ADM plans to deploy new direct connections “soon” with the site’s airport to reduce the number of vehicular trips using the access routes.

Also remember that work is underway on the REM station construction site. ADM hopes to complete its work in the spring of 2026 to allow CDPQ Infra “to do what is necessary to connect the station to the rest of the network.” ADM confirmed that the first users will be able to use this sustainable means of transportation in 2027.
