Specific Exo train lines will be free for 4 days this winter to make travel easier between Montreal and the suburbs this holiday season.\nThis is a great opportunity to visit some of the holiday festivities outside the city if you don't have a car.\nVisit MTLBlog for more headlines.\nChristmas season brings more than just snow and good cheer: it also means four free days of Exo trains to get yourself in and out of Montreal from les banlieues! Just like last year, you'll be able to enjoy free rides on the commuter trains that serve Montreal and the surrounding areas, making it easier than ever to be home for the holidays.\nYou can also expect an altered train schedule for these train lines during the free days of the festive season. The train lines that will see the free rides include Saint-Jérôme, Deux-Montagnes, and Vaudreuil–Hudson.\nPeople who need to take the Exo3 Mont-Saint-Hilaire, Exo4 Candiac, and Exo5 Mascouche to go see the in-laws aren't as lucky, however, as they do not run on the weekends and won't see the free rides this holiday season.\nAccording to an Exo press release,* those riders who would need the Exo 4, 5 or 6 lines to get home for the holidays are invited to take the bus instead. But don't worry, a bunch of bus lines are free, too.\nThe free days are the ones that matter most, December 24 and 25, so that you can be home for Christmas Eve dinner, and December 31 and January 1, so you can roll on back home after your New Years' Eve hangover.\nView this post on Instagram exo 1346 | ligne Vaudreuil-Hudson Model: 1990 GMDD F59PH Location: Gare Lucien-L'Allier, Montréal, QC #transit #transportencommun #transportcollectif #exoquebec #exo #montréal #GMDD #F59PH #train #railfan #traindebanlieue #commuterrail #sunnyday #morningrush #rushhour #friday #lucienlallier #514 #photography A post shared by transitONinsta 🇨🇦⛄️ (@transit_on_insta) on Jul 6, 2018 at 7:23pm PDT\nThe schedule is expected to be released early next week, on October 28, so you can really plan your trip.\nREAD ALSO: Google Is Launching Its First-Ever Game Design Studio In Montreal & It's Hiring\nTo find out if your bus line is free during this holiday season, head to the Exo website here, where they list the bus lines that are free and what their schedules are.\nView this post on Instagram Des fantômes sur notre réseau? 👻 Une chose est certaine: nous sommes hantés par l'idée d'offrir le meilleur service! 😉 A post shared by Exo (@alloexo) on Jul 11, 2017 at 7:30am PDT\nThe line Exo6 Deux Montagnes will be included in the free rides for les fêtes, but starting January 6, 2020 the line will be closed between Gare Centrale and Du Ruisseau until 2023.
