"Montreal is experiencing a meteoric recovery and we are determined to ensure that our downtown area benefits as much as possible from it," Plateau-Mont-Royal Borough Mayor and Executive Committee member responsible for economic development Luc Rabouin said in a press release.
"Thanks to our partners, we are putting in place an unprecedented measure to encourage the use of public transit downtown, to improve mobility and to encourage more visitors and Montrealers to use the metro."
"Montreal's summer has no equal, and after two years of pandemic, we are going to make sure it is unforgettable this year."

The City of Montreal and the borough of Ville-Marie say they're determined to create an "enjoyable downtown summer experience." In addition to free weekend entry at the metro stations, the municipal government is installing 50% more trash and recycling bins downtown and deploying the Mobility Squad to flag "excess orange cones, signs and fences from traffic lanes."
