TL;DR Taxis are striking in Quebec today and it is guaranteed to slow down traffic throughout Montreal and Quebec City. Below is the planned starting point for the strikes in both cities.

The plans for the strike, according to the CBC, currently include travelling in procession, likely at an abnormally slow pace for a taxi in Montreal.

You'll likely also hear a fair amount of honking. 

These are the areas that the taxis are planning to start their strikes, so they will likely be most affected the earliest this morning. 

In Montreal:

  • Galeries d'Anjou
  • Carrefour Laval

In Quebec City:

  • Jean-Talon Market de Charlesbourg
  • Galeries de la Canardière
  • Cooperative taxis of Sainte-Foy

According to the CBC, drivers are likely to strike in front of the offices of the Commission des transport du Quebec, located at 545 boulevard Cremazie Est at the corner of rue Lajeunesse in Youville. 

We will, of course, update you when we have more information on their planned routes.
