Why an automated light rail metro?
Before determining that an automated light rail metro would be the best mode of transportation for the REM de l'Est, other types of transportation were compared and analyzed, including tramway and tram-train. Read the news to learn more about these comparative studies.
A network integrated into the urban environment
Passengers on board the REM de l’Est will fly over the traffic while enjoying impressive city views and a unique perspective of the Saint-Lawrence River.
Particular attention will be paid to the architectural treatment of the elevated structure and stations to deliver a modern and emblematic signature.
The REM doubles the coverage of the metro network in the east end of Montréal and it will offer an efficient connection to other public networks.
Thanks to these new links, attractions in the east of Montréal will be easily accessible.

An overview of the project
Comfort, safety, accessibility: a total of 23 stations will be rolled out during this project. They will all comply with universal accessibility principles and be equipped with screen doors to ensure user comfort and safety.
The REM de l’Est will have fully automated electric light rail cars that run on a dedicated track. Users will be able to count on frequent service 7 days a week. Like the Montréal metro, the network will run all day and offer free WiFi.
The REM de l’Est will use one of the most secure and reliable advanced technologies in the world: a GoA4 automated system. Since there will be no driver at the front, the REM de l’Est will offer impressive views of the city and the Saint-Lawrence River.
The REM de l’Est will run on all new infrastructure which will be adapted to the neighbourhoods that it crosses. The Marie-Victorin Branch, which will travel north, will be made up of an 7-km tunnel and elevated structures. The common section and the Pointe-aux-Trembles Branch will both be entirely elevated.
