How will users be able to transfer to the Mascouche Line, once the REM is running?
The arrival of the REM means that users of the Mascouche line will have to transfer at the Côte-de-Liesse brand-new station, located just past Ahuntsic train station. This station will be expressly designed to ensure smooth transfer of users between the Mascouche line and the REM :
- Station equipment will optimize traffic: wide corridors, elevators, shared platform (see the preliminary rending)
- As soon as you leave the commuter train, you will walk on a covered platform, then enter a closed station, sheltered from inclement weather
- The high frequency of the REM (2.5 minutes during rush hour) will mean fast boarding for users and reduced waiting times
Once aboard the REM, allow 6 minutes to Édouard-Montpetit (blue line), 9 minutes to McGill (green line), 10 minutes to Central Station (orange line) and 15 minutes to Montréal-Trudeau airport.
