Public consultation results – Rapport de consultation publique – Prolongement du Rapibus jusqu'au boulevard de l'Aéroport

An initial consultation was conducted this past December as part of the opportunity study for the Rapibus extension to boulevard de l'Aéroport.

The purpose of the study is to identify and analyze the needs and constraints of this additional portion and demonstrate its pertinence. Several aspects are being looked at, including current and future transportation needs.
