Watch Montreal's All-New Metro Car Hit The Tracks For The Very First Time

First glimpses of the AZUR trains in action.
Watch Montreal's All-New Metro Car Hit The Tracks For The Very First Time

Yesterday morning, after STM's new AZUR metro cars first arrived in Montreal, the new trains went for their inaugural test run.

This is the first in many tests the STM will conduct to ensure the safety and efficiency of the AZUR trains.

Testing is obviously underway, but the new trains won't officially be open to the public until this fall, assuming the STM's timeline stays intact.

Check out the AZUR trains in motion through the video below.

Are you excited to ride the AZUR?
