Sustainable transport


ADM’s vehicle fleet comprises around 100 light-duty and 170 heavy-duty vehicles. Ground vehicles at Montréal–Trudeau, including parking lot shuttle buses, account for nearly half of total GHG emissions generated by ADM operations. In 2018, GHG emissions generated by this vehicle fleet amounted to some 4,000 tonnes of CO2.

Reduction of transportation-related GHG emissions is of prime concern. The Corporation has therefore adopted a series of measures to this end:

  • Upgrading of the ground-vehicle fleet to more fuel-efficient models and acquisition of electric vehicles; 
  • Use of more fuel-efficient parking shuttles; fleet management adjusted to demand and routes optimized;
  • Idling-avoidance and eco-driving awareness campaign;
  • Implementation of the Écono-Écolo-Pratique program, promoting alternative transportation methods, such as ride-sharing and public transit, in partnership with the MOBA / Mobilité alternative program; 33% of ADM employees are participants in the program;
  • Installation of electric-vehicle charging stations in various parking facilities;
  • Construction of a free parking lot (CellParc) for people accompanying passengers, in order to reduce passenger pickup area traffic and reduce vehicle idling;
  • Montreal-Trudeau taxi fleet consisted, in 2017, of 250 hybrid vehicles and 100 minivans, as a result of ADM’s new taxi permit draw process. Furthermore, 200 Téo taxis were in operation between June 2016 and January 2019;
  • The 747 Express Bus, in collaboration with the Société de transport de Montréal (STM), which provides transportation service between downtown Montréal and Montréal–Trudeau airport for passengers as well as employees;
  • The Réseau express métropolitain (REM), which will link Montréal–Trudeau airport and downtown Montréal.
