CDPQ Infra announced that Réseau express métropolitain teams are actively preparing for the commissioning of the South Shore branch, with 16 kilometers between the Gare Centrale and Brossard stations.

The final phase consists of simulating the future service, without passengers. Over the next few days, REM cars will run at frequencies similar to those of the future service. To reach this final stage, the teams have completed a number of decisive milestones over the past 12 months, including the complete electrification of the 16.6 km South Shore antenna, the crossing of the Samuel-De Champlain Bridge and a third consecutive winter of intensive testing.

Once the date is confirmed, the inauguration of the Brossard stations to Central Station will be planned. The public will be invited on a specific opening date to celebrate the ultimate milestone.

The Réseau express métropolitain (REM) is a new 67-km, 26-station integrated mass public transit network designed to link downtown Montreal, the South Shore, the West Island, the North Shore and Montreal-Trudeau airport by means of a fully automated, electric light metro system. Offering high-frequency service, the REM will operate 7 days a week, 20 hours a day, and will be connected to the existing Montreal’s three metro lines.
