Sounds interesting. Given the number, will it be called 427 Express St. Joseph or something? I'm interested to see how this turns out.

Wow! Maybe a precursor to the diagonal metro line often talked about that would serve Rosemont and the Plateau? This is great... only now we have to see how it will get downtown. Would it get there via R.-Levesque R-BUS lanes? Or go via the Mountain? Or maybe des Pins/Dr. Penfield? It's about time more Express routes were created!

220 is NOT new. It's been running for a few years now.

Really out of what CT. I tried entering it on the STM site and it said the route does not exist, so I thought it was new.

A few years?? Maybe over a year but not over two years surely.

See, I wasn't on crack.

I wonder where it would stop in Lachine and if it will have limited stops on Newman.

Hopefully the STM will plan this route properly.

I went down to the "sushi bar" at Berri today to battle the vulture-like old people for the new Planibus. I did not find any schedules for the 406, 427 or 747 there. When I went to inquire about their availability at the Objets Trouves counter, I was told that these routes would be launching in March 2010 as opposed to January.

Seven bucks they want for that! This would be our first premium express route in decades.

"It will be a very nice bus, you'll put your baggage (in a storage area) underneath and you'll get a transfer for the subway," said STM vice-chairperson Marvin Rotrand

Sorry if this is old news, but could this mean they're going to use coach buses? (I would imagine it to be a little tricky making a storage area under an LFS :))

One of the comments on the Gazette site say that it will be free for CAM/TRAM holders. This is very good news.
