Réseau Express Métropolitain (REM)


In short

A new network for Greater Montréal

The REM is one of the world's largest automated transport network and the largest public transit project undertaken in Québec in the last 50 years. With 67 km and 26 stations, the REM will quickly get you downtown, to the South Shore, the North Shore, the West Island and the Airport.

The Sainte-Anne-de-Bellevue REM station will be located between chemin Sainte-Marie and the North Service Road. The REM will be in service 20 hours a day, 7 days a week, with frequencies ranging from 10 minutes during peak periods to 15 minutes during off-peak periods.

Other Items of Interest

Demolition of a railway bridge over A40
In the West Island of Montreal, a section of the Doney antenna will have to be demolished. The acquisition of this CN antenna allows the implementation of the REM in an existing corridor and limits the impact of the work. However, this dismantling, planned for the fall, includes a segment passing over Highway 40 at Henri-Bourassa Boulevard West, which will have to be hindered during the intervention.
Collaboration is being carried out with the Ministère des Transports, de la Mobilité durable et de l'Électrification des transports (MTMDET) in order to coordinate the Ministry's projects with those planned operations on weekends, which will impact traffic on the A40.
