Vimont is an commuter train station in Laval, Quebec, Canada on the Blainville-Saint-Jerome Line of the Agence métropolitaine de transport (AMT) (in English, the "Metropolitan transportation agency"), the umbrella organization that plans, integrates, and coordinates public transportation services in the Greater Montreal, Quebec, Canada area. Vimont is in Fare Zone 3 and currently has 200 parking spaces. [ [http://www.amt.qc.ca/tc/train/gares/index.asp?nogare=103 Gare Vimont] ]

Origin of name

The station is named after the neighborhood of Vimont in the city of Laval.

History

CP Service

There was previously a station called "Petite-Cote" at this location.

AMT Service

The station was opened on October 18, 2006 following growing demand for service following the collapse of the De la Concorde overpass in Laval. The station has since become a permanent stop on the line.

Location

The station is located at 50 boul. Bellerose Ouest in Laval.

Connecting bus routes

Société de transport de Laval

Future Plans

The station will be made permanent in 2008 once the City of Laval, completes the extension of boulevard Dagenais between boulevard des Laurentides and boulevard Industriel. The new station calls for 300 permanent parking spaces, kiss and ride spaces, and a bus loop. After completion of the first phase, the AMT will evaluate the long-term needs of the station, which could call for up to 600 parking spaces, and plan for the second phase, if required.
