Beginning next Tuesday, the Transport ministry will institute a pilot project that would allow buses STM and inter-city (CIT) buses to ride on the shoulder of Highway 40 on a 12-kilometre stretch between Kirkland and St. Laurent.
They'll be set up between Cavendish Blvd. in St. Laurent and St. Charles Blvd. in Kirkland, in both directions. The idea is to make it easier for public transit buses to move through the often congested thoroughfare.
The special lanes will be clearly marked along the 40. The shoulders will not be open to taxis, carpoolers and non-authorized buses.
