Ferry from Pointe-aux-Trembles to downtown resumes for second year

A shuttle service by ferry between Pointe-aux-Trembles and Montreal’s Old Port started Sunday morning. The pilot project, which follows a one-week trial last year, will run seven days a week until Sept. 28.

The Société des traversiers du Québec has awarded a three-year, $7-million contract to Croisières Navark to operate the water shuttle.

Aimed at pedestrians and cyclists, the shuttle offers an alternative to the lengthy commute for east-end residents.

Tickets can either be booked online at navark.ca or bought on site. Credit cards and cash are accepted.

The ferry costs $3.50 for a pedestrian and $4.50 for a cyclist. It travels between the end of St-Jean-Baptiste Blvd. to the ferry dock at the Old Port, and a one-way trip takes about 30 minutes. Ferries depart every 30 minutes during peak periods and every 60-75 minutes the rest of the day and on the weekend. The full schedule is available at navark.ca.
