Montreal's First New STM Metro Car Finally Arrives In The City

The first of many AZUR prototypes, the STM's new métro car model, have arrived in Montreal. The STM couldn't hold back their excitement and let the city know through the tweets and photos below.

Montreal's new metro cars aren't planned to hit the tracks until fall, so don't get too excited to ride the AZUR cars just yet. The AZUR train's early arrival is to allow time to test the brand new trains on the much older Montreal underground network.

Some scares made it seem like the new cars were simply too big for the STM's train tracks, largely in part to a JdeM article, but a representative from the STM made us aware the cars simply need to be slightly modified and the fall 2014-timeline is still intact.

Check out Montreal's new metro cars below.
