Ferry between Pointe-aux-Trembles and Old Port comes back in June

The ferry between Pointe-aux-Trembles and the Old Port will run again this summer.

After a successful project last year, the Quebec Ferry Company (STQ) awarded a three-year $7 million contract to Navark Cruise Lines.

Pedestrians and cyclists can expect to pay around $3 for the ferry ride, similar to the price of an STM bus ticket.

The trip takes 22 minutes. By car, it can take over an hour.

The ferry will start operating in mid-June and run through until the end of September.

There are multiple ferry services on the St. Lawrence River, including from the Old Port to Jean Drapeau Park and Longueuil, from Promenade-Bellerive Park to Charron Island, from Varennes to Pointe-aux-Trembles and Repentigny, and from Lachine to Chateauguay.
