This is part of the work
undertaken in 2008 to equip five stations on the Orange line with elevators,
namely Lionel-Groulx, Bonaventure, Berri-UQAM, Henri-Bourassa and Côte-Vertu.
The elevators in Henri-Bourassa station will begin service April 26, while
those in Côte-Vertu station will become operational by the end of this year,
bringing the number of accessible stations on the Orange line to eight.
The ministère des Transports du Québec worked with the STM and representatives of the disabled community to determine which five stations would be the first to have elevators installed. As part of the Réno- Systèmes Programme, the work was made possible thanks to the MTQ, which funded 75 percent of admissible expenditures.
