Réseau Express Métropolitain (REM)

The Réseau Express Métropolitain (REM) is a major public transit project currently under construction in Montreal, which will be one of the largest automated transportation systems in the world. The project initially comprised a 67 km light rail transit system with 27 stations in and around the Greater Montreal area, linking downtown Montreal, South Shore, West Island, North Shore and the airport with a new integrated network. It has subsequently been extended, adding 32 km of track and 23 new stations that will connect the eastern districts with the downtown area.

The project

Once completed, the REM will be one of the largest automated transportation systems in the world after Singapore, Dubai and Vancouver.

  • The automated light rail system was chosen in order to provide modern, efficient and reliable service. This technology will provide a new transportation dynamic with frequent starts (every 2.5 minutes from downtown) and large time savings for users.

  • The network is integrated with the existing systems—connected to the metro, commuter trains and buses. The rolling stock will have more than 200 cars, with an operation frequency of 90 seconds

  • Facilities include wi-fi, heating and air conditioning and universal accessibility
