There's no doubt that the many winter storms in Montreal this year have caused travelling to be much more difficult. Commuting is no question a nightmare — from the icy walk to the bus stop or station, the slushy water you have to stand in while waiting for public transit, the freezing cold temperatures that feel 10x worse when you're standing still waiting for your bus, and of course... the delays.

Well, as if transit issues couldn't get any worse, according to the Journal de Montreal, multiple bus stops across Montreal have been either cancelled or relocated indefinitely due to winter conditions.

TL;DR Due to winter conditions, multiple bus stops in Montreal have been cancelled indefinitely. Montrealers have taken their frustrations to Twitter in hopes snow removal teams will solve the issue. More details below.

For many metro stations and bus stops, the only path to actually get to the stop is one made by the footprints of previous commuters. Because of the accumulation of snow the last few weeks, certain bus stops have been relocated, such as the one at the corner of Parthenais and Rouen, which has been shut down since February 14 due to inaccessibility.

Because of the closures and no reopening of the bus stops in sight, Montrealers have begun expressing their frustration of the issue on Twitter: 

And for the buses and trains that are running? You'll probably end up waiting for a couple to drive past your stop before you finally get on.

If you've been patiently waiting for the day your bus route or path to your stop has been cleared, there is a way to find out its status. The Ville de Montreal website actually has a tracker system that allows you to type in an address and check out whether or not your street is still covered in snow, plowed, planning to be plowed, and more. It's definitely a tool that will come in handy while you decide your course of action for travelling in the city.

For those of us who are still dealing with the closures and shut downs, the struggle will last just a bit longer.
