STM adding more buses, cell coverage to more metro stations

The STM is adjusting bus schedules as of this Monday, looking to add service to popular routes during peak times as well as nights and overnights.

The new schedules are already posted to the STM website, and La Presse reports 56 bus lines will get added buses for the season.

At the same time, 45 others will have service decreased.

The STM has also announced cellphone coverage has expanded to thirty metro stations. 

For the past few years, the public transit authority has been gradually growing the network of stations where cell and wireless internet service is available.

The yellow line is now completely covered, and you can go wireless on the green and orange lines throughout the downtown core and up to Cote-Vertu station. The western tip of the Blue Line, from Snowden to Cote-des-Neiges station, was added as of last month.
