Parc Jean-Drapeau's bike link

The bicycle path at parc Jean-Drapeau between the South shore and Montreal will be opened until December 1, 2016.

Officially, Parc Jean-Drapeau's bike link is open each year from April 15 to October 31 from 6 a.m. to 10 p.m. Should weather allow the extension of the operating period or if weather do not allow the opening of the bike link, we will notify users via our Website and Social Medias.

Please note the bike link is not accessible when a ship is passing through the Saint-Lambert locks. Since there may be a fairly long wait when a ship goes through the locks, we invite you to consult the following link so you can better plan your bike trip.

River shuttle

During the summer season, Parc Jean-Drapeau visitors can take the river shuttle as an original means of transportation from Montréal's Old Port(Jacques-Cartier Pier).

Passengers can also bring along their bikes since they have access to a network of cycling paths at each stop.
