LAVAL’S BIKE PATH NETWORK

With nearly 270 km of bike paths, Laval is a bike lover’s paradise! Accessible between April 15 and November 14, Laval’s bike path network includes a 32 km section of the Route Verte, North America’s longest network of bicycle trails. 

The bike path network is continually updated and forms a key component of the City of Laval’s strategy to promote effective, active and sustainable mobility. The STL works actively with the City of Laval and Vélo Québec to encourage more active lifestyles by developing cycling infrastructure in Laval.

4. Load your bike into the slot nearest to the bus.

5. Raise the support arm as high as it will go over the wheels to secure your bike in place.

6. Board the bus and validate your fare.

How to remove your bike from the rack
