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.
