Pie-IX, Boulevard, named after Pope Pius IX, is a major boulevard on the island of Montreal. It runs for roughly 11 km (6.8 mi) in a northwest/southeast direction between Henri Bourassa Boulevard and Notre-Dame East. Pie-IX Boulevard runs past the Montreal Botanical Gardens and the Olympic Stadium. The boulevard forms part of Quebec Route 125


Transit[edit]

Pie-IX metro station is located on and named for the street.

The boulevard is serviced by the 139 Pie-IX regular service bus, and the reserved bus lane 439 rush hour bus.

Prior to 2002, the boulevard hosted the sole bus rapid transit line in Montreal, the 505 BRT Pie-IX, which used contracirculating lanes and dedicated bus stations.[1] It is projected that in 2013, the system will come back online with two separated lanes.[1]

The Montréal-Nord Station will be located on Pie-IX Boulevard.
