Montreal - West Island commuters here are rolling into the newly finished
Quebec Minister of Transport Jacques Brassard, and Jacques Cote, president of the newly-named St. Lawrence & Hudson Railway, were both
on hand for the official ribbon-cutting ceremony 22 Mar 1996.
The new terminus serves Montreal's Urban Community Transportation Commission's Montreal-Rigaud rail line. Boarding at 18 stations, an
estimated 3,000 to 4,000 passengers travel daily on the 64-km route.
Windsor Terminus abuts the new Molson Centre, home of the Montreal Canadiens, at the corner of de la Montague and de La Gauchetiere
streets. It was constructed at a cost of $7.5 million. Pedestrian corridors link commuters arriving at Windsor Terminus to Montreal's
Metro system and Windsor Station. Video screens will provide up-to-the-minute information on train schedules.
"Windsor terminus offers a gateway to one of the most vibrant, cosmopolitan cities in North America", said Mr. Cote, "It
reinforces our commitment to the future of commuter rail services in the Greater Montreal area".
