Since the launch of the STM’s “Golden Shuttle” 262 which services Cote Saint-Luc’s senior population, connecting apartments, condos and seniors residences with the City’s main facilities as well as the Place Angrignon shopping centre in LaSalle there has been demand to connect the City with Montreal’s west end hospitals.
Several requests have been made by City Council to the STM and we will continue to press forward with this need. What can you do? Call the STM and make your opinion known.

CSL GOLD SHUTTLE BUS REMINDER
Côte St. Luc is reminding residents of the existence of the 262 – Navette Or Côte St. Luc, a “26 km minibus route which features 18 stops in each direction, serving seven residences for seniors in that area, as well as the main local points of interest to them.
In addition to the residences, the minibus route serves Carrefour Angrignon, Cavendish Mall, Maimonides Geriatric Centre, CLSC René- Cassin, the Eleanor London Côte St. Luc Public Library, the Côte Saint-Luc Shopping Centre, and the municipal swimming pool,” says a city advisory.
“The 262 shuttle bus operates on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays, with four departures in each direction, between 9 a.m. and 4 p.m. The route takes about 44 minutes to travel in each direction, from the Côte St. Luc municipal swimming pool (north terminus) to Carrefour Angrignon (south terminus). The bus route number appears on a gold-coloured background on designated bus stops.”

The one-year-old 262 ‘Golden’ shuttle is gaining in popularity among seniors. After launching the 262 with the intention of evaluating its potential over a period of a year, the STM has since discovered it to be in Montreal’s top three busiest shuttle services.
The best way to ensure the service is expanded is to ride it.

It’s not the space shuttle! It’s the all-new CSL Golden Shuttle.
Golden Shuttle 262 takes to the road on November 2
Today the City of Cote Saint-Luc and the Montreal Transit Corporation launched a special shuttle aimed particularly at senior citizens.The bus line is numbered 262 – and the official title is the “Navette Or Côte Saint-Luc”.The service was launched in District 6 at the Caldwell Residences by the Chairman of the Board of Directors of the Société de transport de Montréal, Michel Labreque and Councillors Dida Berku, Allan Levine and myself.
I am particularly pleased to be officiating at the inauguration of this service, something that I have spoken a great deal about over the last few years in anticipation of this day.
Cote Saint-Luc places enormous importance in providing quality services to our senior population. It is fitting that the first stop on the 262 route will be at our intergenerational and aquatic centre, now under construction.
The ability to remain active and mobile are key factors in maintaining a high quality of life and we hope that our seniors will take great advantage of this new service.
The route ia served by a minivan based on a schedule with 4 departures per direction between 9 am and 6 pm Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays. The route begins at the future site of the Cote Saint-Luc Aquatic and Community Centre, at Parkhaven and Mackle Roads (northern terminus), and zigzags past seniors residences, the library, city hall, the Cavendish Mall / CLSC, Cote Saint-Luc Shopping Centre, several condos and ends up at Carrefour Angrignon (southern terminus).
The round trip route has 32 stops (16 per direction) offering front door access to 1180 homes. The journey takes 44 minutes in each direction.
