Saturday, June 2 signals the start of the City of Montréal’s pilot project interrupting car transit traffic on the Camillien-Houde/Remembrance axis. This project will run until October 31, 2018.
Important! The Camillien-Houde/Remembrance axis as a means of transit will be accessible to pedestrians, cyclists, public transit (STM), school and tourist buses, adapted transportation (STM for 9 people or more), funeral processions as well as emergency and city vehicles.

How Will This Affect Motorists

It’s important to know that the mountain and its public spaces will be accessible to motorists at all times. However, the pilot project will determine your choice of route depending on your departure point, your destination in the park and the proximity of the parking available.

Getting to Mount Royal Park by car:
  • Motorists travelling on Camillien-Houde Way from the east will have to park at Smith House.
  • Motorists coming from the west via Remembrance Road will have to park in the Beaver Lake area.
Regardless of where you arrive in the park, it’s less than a 10-minute walk between Beaver Lake and Smith House (and a couple more minutes to the Mount Royal Chalet).

Getting to other destinations on the mountain:
  • Mount Royal Cemetery: Access from the east by Camillien-Houde Way or the main entrance on chemin de la Forêt
  • Notre-Dame-des-Neiges Cemetery: Access via entrances on Côte-des-Neiges Road or Decelles Street
  • SPVM Cavalry: Access from the east by Camillien-Houde Way (Smith House parking)
Take this Opportunity to Explore New Horizons

The City of Montréal invites all Mount Royal users to experience these spaces on the mountain in a whole new way thanks to recreational facilities temporarily set up along Camillien-Houde/Remembrance. Learn more about its program of activities for the whole family!

The Pilot Project at a Glance

By implementing this pilot project, the City of Montréal wishes to measure the effects of removing transit traffic for private vehicles on the Camillien-Houde/Remembrance axis. It will document car traffic, the impact on the quality of life of mountain residents, the environmental impact and the quality of the experience of visitors to Mount Royal Park and cemeteries.

For more in-depth information on the pilot project, see Moving Towards a New Park Lane published by the City of Montréal or its summary of the pilot project as presented at the OCPM.

Learn More About Accessibility and Mobility

On May 17, Les amis de la montagne held a public forum bringing together Mount Royal specialists and members of the general public. Our goal was to present accessibility issues and challenges affecting the mountain’s entire territory and encourage citizen participation. For more information, watch the video:

Express Yourself

Whether you live in Montréal or one of its suburbs, and if you enjoy coming to the mountain, your voice can be heard. The Office de consultation publique de Montréal (OCPM) invites you to take part in the public consultations on the pilot project eliminating through traffic of cars on Camillien-Houde and Remembrance roads. Commissioned by the City of Montréal, the OCPM is tasked with evaluating the project and facilitating the debate and reflection on the future of access roads to Mount Royal through citizen participation.
