West Island | 6 new stations, 5 of which are elevated
Sunnybrooke, Pierrefonds-Roxboro, Des Sources, Pointe-Claire, Kirkland and Anse-à-l’Orme stations
You’ll be able to recognize the REM stations by the presence of glass and wood, as well as patterns on the paving stone and the stations’ outer envelope suggesting movement. In residential areas, the addition of vegetation around the stations will incorporate them into the landscape.
In the Pierrefonds-Roxboro sector, the colour blue will be used in accent on the ceramic walls, floors and plantings around the stations, in reference to the proximity of the Rivière des Prairies. The Anse-à-l’Orme branch stations will be tinged with a forest-green reminiscent of the access to West Island’s parks.
The stations are also equipped with elevators and guidance paths to ensure the network’s universal accessibility.

Work in progress
On the West Island, the REM’s route runs along the old Doney spur, and then crosses and skirts the north side of Highway 40. The Anne and Marie launching gantries are advancing in parallel to gradually build the elevated structure that is increasingly taking shape.
Construction of the Fairview-Pointe-Claire and Anse-à-l’Orme stations began in 2020 and will continue in 2021. The Pierrefonds-Roxboro, Sunnybrooke, Des Sources and Kirkland stations will also start going up in 2021.

Station Des Sources will be located at the corner of Des Sources and Hymus boulevards.
Station Pointe-Claire will be located at the corner of the Highway 40 North Service Road and Fairview Avenue, on the west side of the street, close to the Fairview Pointe-Claire shopping mall.
Station Kirkland will be located north of Highway 40, near Jean-Yves Boulevard.
Station Sainte-Anne-de-Bellevue will be located between Sainte-Marie Road and the North service road.
Stations Roxboro-Pierrefonds and Sunnybrooke will be located where the Deux-Montagnes line currently has two stations with the same names.
Des Sources and Saint-Anne-de-Bellevue stations will be equipped with parking lots to facilitate access for drivers. Discussions are underway with different partners to determine the number of parking spaces available at the Pointe-Claire and Kirkland stations. REM users will also be able to park in the existing parking spaces for the Deux-Montagnes line (Pierrefonds-Roxboro and Sunnybrooke stations).
Our intent is also to focus on a sustainable solution: public and active transit. Bus networks in various municipalities will be revised to optimize feeder service to REM’s stations. The buses will stop near the stations for quick and efficient transfer to REM's metro cars. This cooperation with transit companies will continue throughout the project to ensure optimal feeder service as soon as REM starts up.
If you take the REM from the West Island, you will have to transfer at the Bois-Franc station to go to the airport.
For example from Kirkland, follow the following route:
- Kirkland > Bois-Franc (14 minutes)
- Bois-Franc > Montreal-Trudeau Airport (9 minutes)
The REM will have a high frequency so you won't wait too long at the Bois-Franc station when connecting to the airport.
The Vaudreuil-Hudson line is currently operated by exo (Réseau de transport métropolitain) and will continue to operate even after the REM is launched. Vaudreuil–Hudson line users will be able to continue taking the train to travel downtown. The REM will become a additionnal complementary offer.
Architectural renders of the stations are presented in our Photos and videos section.
