Frequently Asked Questions

Will it be possible to increase the REM’s capacity?

Yes. The REM has been designed to accommodate increases in ridership.

Once commissioned, the REM will have a frequency of 150 seconds on the main segment (Rive-Sud – Bois-Franc) during peak hours. However, its technology allows for a frequency of up to 90 seconds, which means that capacity can be increased by two-thirds. If ridership increases significantly in coming decades, the frequency and number of trains in service on the network may be increased accordingly.
