If you're in downtown Montreal and spot a giant Canada Post tricycle delivering mail, you're not dreaming.

As part of a new pilot project, Canada Post will be testing its "e-cargo trikes" for the next three months "in selected areas of downtown Montréal as an environmentally friendly option to deliver packages."

There will be two of these delivery tricycles zooming around downtown Montreal to test out the viability of this unique delivery system. The trikes will take advantage of downtown Montreal's extensive bike lane network to get around.

According to Canada Post, "the project will help to assess not just the viability of the trikes as delivery vehicles in certain locations, but will also inform the development of the best safe-work procedures and design features."

In 2019, the City of Montreal implemented its own cargo bike delivery project to some success.
