Montreal's All-New STM Azur Metro Cars Are Now Live! (20 Photos)

A historic day for Montrealers, Montreal and the STM.
Montreal's All-New STM Azur Metro Cars Are Now Live! (20 Photos)

We reported on Friday about Montreal’s new Azur metro Cars going live and even though quite a few of you were skeptical that it would 100% go as planned after many, many delays, today, Sunday February 7th, 2016 they are finally here. Everything worked out perfectly and the STM had the new Azur metro cars out rolling bright and early on the Orange Line this morning. A historic day indeed for the STM, commuters, and the city itself so check out the pictures and videos below of the inaugural rides.

Vous êtes nombreux à l'intérieur d'#AZURstm, nous sommes heureux de partager ce moment avec vous!

STM's brand-new baby is leaving the #placesainthenri #metrostation on its inaugural ride that was smooth (air suspension), quiet (better acoustics), and shiny (better lighting and new materials). #montreal #azurSTM #newmetrotrain #thismtl #nerd

C'est *enfin* le XXIème siècle qui est passé me chercher ! #jaiprisazur #azurstm - : le diable est dans les détails, la publicité vidéo envahie les voitures de métro. Dommage. Sommes nous si cheap ?! +++ : Tout le reste !! Confortable, lumineux, spacieux. Bonus : Un petit air sonore de Paris, ça doit être le même matériel de traction. J'<3 #Montréal The XXIst century *finally* picked me up! - : devil is in the details : video advertising invades metro cars. Pity. Are we so cheap?! +++ : everything else!! Comfy, luminous, full of space. Bonus : It sounds a little like Paris one, must be the same traction material. I <3
