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. It is projected that in 2022, the system will come back online with two separated lanes.
The Montréal-Nord commuter rail station is located on Pie-IX Boulevard.
