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.
Between May 1 and October 31, all STL buses are equipped with bike racks at the front of the vehicle. Caught in bad weather? Feel like cycling part of your route? With Cyclobus, simply attach your bike to the front of an STL bus and continue on your journey!
Pilot project – winter 2022-2023
To test the durability of the equipment in winter weather, 25 buses will remain equipped with a bike rack during the winter. They will circulate randomly on the network, so their presence cannot be guaranteed on a line or at a specific stop.
Important reminder: Only non-motorized 2-wheel bicycles are allowed: bicycles for children, tandems, unicycles, oversized tires (fat bikes) and electric bicycles are prohibited.

How to load your bike onto the rack
1. At the bus stop, inform the bus driver that you wish to use the bike rack.
2. Wait for other passengers to remove their bike before loading yours.
3. If the bike rack is in the closed position, release the latch to lower it.
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
1. Before reaching your destination, inform the bus driver that you wish to get off and unload your bike.
2. Return the support arm to the horizontal position.
3. Lift your bike off the rack.
4. If the bike rack is empty and no other passenger wishes to load their bike, fold up the rack until it locks into place.
5. Move away from the bus and signal to the driver that the path is clear.
