It’s easy to travel by bus, Metro or commuter train to and from Laval. Persons with disabilities also benefit from adapted transport services
With its 44 bus lines, the Société de transport de Laval (STL) provides public transport in all parts of the city. The Lavallois therefore benefit from a large selection of public transport options, combining buses, Metro and suburban train.
In order to improve the speed, reliability and accessibility of its network, the Société de transport de Laval (STL) conducted major work in 2016 with the implementation of a series of preferential bus measures (MPB).
Safety on bike paths
For a smooth and safe use of bike lanes, it is important to respect other users and signalling is always in effect. To avoid accidents, cyclists and skaters should avoid excessive speed and risky overtaking. Pedestrians must use the sidewalk if there is one. Otherwise, they should make sure to walk in single file to facilitate the free movement of other trail users.
The bike path along the shoreline was widened, where possible, to make room for pedestrians, parents with strollers and runners, many of whom want to enjoy the waterfront. Every summer, police cadets patrol the paths to help users follow posted instructions and inform cyclists of safety rules.
CENTRE DE LA NATURE
The Centre de la Nature, located in the Saint-Vincent-de-Paul district, just 10 minutes from Le Nautica, is an urban park of more than 50 hectares, the largest in Laval. This family-friendly green space was built on the site of a former quarry and partly on a dump. This is one of the few examples of this type of redevelopment in North America.
Decades of effort were needed to revive this space, scarred by years of quarrying. Thanks to a helpful boost, nature was able to catch its breath, now offering an oasis of greenery and flowers to the entire population of Laval.
There are many activities available in the park for each of our four seasons.
