A REM for all
Providing an accessible and inclusive transit network is one of our main goals. Here’s how we’re making your travel easier.
What is universal accessibility?
Products, services, information or environments are universally accessible if they are inclusive and allow everyone to carry out their activities autonomously with equal results. [Translated]1

Check out how we designed the REM stations and cars to maximize network accessibility.
I have a card entitling me to have a companion ride with me for free on the regular network, which was issued by a transit authority other than the REM. Can I also have a companion ride with me for free on the REM?
Yes, an OPUS card entitling you to have a companion ride with you for free on the regular network that was issued by exo, the Réseau de transport de Longueuil (RTL), the Société de transport de Laval (STL) or the Société de transport de Montréal (STM) is accepted on our network. We also accept companion cards issued by the Joliette RCM and the Réseau de transport de la Capitale (RTC).
Guide dogs and service dogs are allowed on the REM. Other animals must travel in carrier cages. REM is conducting a pilot project to allow dogs on a leash on the network at all times, except during rush hours, certain conditions apply.
Inclusive Mobility: our public transit training program
Inclusive Mobility is a training program that provides practical, hands-on tools to help public transit customers with functional limitations learn more about using the bus, métro, train and REM networks. The goal is to promote their safety, autonomy and confidence.
