MONTREAL, Jan. 21, 2014 /CNW Telbec/ - Montréal Saint-Jérôme commuter
train users could soon benefit from access to an indoor train station
at Parc. This will make it possible for users to wait for the train in
a safe and comfortable environment with an array of services such a
facility can offer, including a coffee shop with related services,
restrooms and a waiting room.
Kevric Real Estate Corporation is leading this private project aimed at
transforming the building located at 280 Gary Carter (formerly Faillon)
into an indoor train station. The current Parc station is comprised of
a series of unheated waiting areas and is one of the busiest along the
rail line in the Blainville and St-Jerome direction. Its use has
increased by 12% in 2013 alone.
"We are very pleased to propose this project in a rapidly developing
neighborhood where public transportation is not only essential but is
also expected to increase over the next several years," stated Richard
Hylands, President of Kevric. "The building identified for the Parc
Train Station is ideal for this use and is adjacent to the current AMT
In attendance during an information session held near the Parc station
this morning, Ms. Anie Samson, vice-president of Montreal's executive
committee and mayor of the Villeray—Saint-Michel—Parc -Extension
borough stated: "I am convinced that the addition of an indoor train
station would be an important asset to further energize the
neighborhood and it would also represent an added incentive to
encourage the use of public transportation for the working population
of this area, whose numbers continue to increase. Not to mention that
it would also be an added service for all montrealers."
In order to inform and solicit the opinion of commuters, the developer
has launched a dedicated website, Facebook page and Twitter account:
"We hope that travellers will provide us with their opinion of the
project and most of all, voice their support to the relevant
authorities," concluded Mr. Hylands. A banner has also been installed
on the future train station and other information activities will be
held in the station's vicinity in the coming days.
