In its capacity as trustred friend of Mount Royal, Les amis de la montagne calls for easy and safe access to Mount Royal Park's various entry points. Whether users travel by foot, bike, bus or car, our mountain should be accessible to everyone.

Safe & Easy Acess to the Mountain

Access by public transit or active transportation to the Mount Royal summit vicinity, where one of the main entrances to Mount Royal Park is located, still requires additional measures to make it efficient, safe and user friendly.

Potential solutions, such as increasing public transit to and over the mountain, developing incentive parking lots on the outskirts and distributing information on pedestrian accesses to Mount Royal, must be evaluated and implemented.

Moreover, the Camillien-Houde roadway and Côte-des-Neiges/Remembrance axis will have to be redesigned to ensure the safety of the increasing numbers of walkers and cyclists. To this end, on December 9, 2016, members of the Table de concertation du Mont-Royal (TCMR) adopted a consensus on the redevelopment of the Côte-des-Neiges/Remembrance sector and Mount Royal accessibility needs. Members of the TCMR have recommended that the City of Montréal develop a comprehensive and up-to-date vision of mountain accessibility.

Les amis de la montagne supports these efforts and will ensure that all Mount Royal Park users are informed of any initiative aimed at improving the accessibility of the mountain.
