Schedule adjustment for the Deux-Montagnes and Mascouche lines
Starting June 25, 2018, the construction of the REM is entering a new phase of work that will require a change to the train schedules on the Deux-Montagnes and Mascouche lines.
These adjustments will make it possible to isolate a segment of the Deux-Montagnes line at Mont-Royal/Canora and to begin building the future stations of the REM. Here is what you need to know.
1. New schedules
Altogether, 23 departures will be modified on the Deux-Montagnes line (schedules shifted by several minutes) and three departures on the Mascouche line. These new schedules will be applied on a continuous basis beginning June 25, 2018 until January 2020.
The new departure schedules from Deux-Montagnes to Central Station, during morning rush hour:
- 06:20 a.m.
- 06:50 a.m.
- 07:10 a.m.
- 07:37 a.m.
- 08:00 a.m.
- 08:45 a.m.
The new departure schedules from Central Station to Deux-Montagnes, during evening rush hour:
- 4:20 p.m.
- 4:50 p.m.
- 5:08 p.m.
- 5:28 p.m.
- 5:50 p.m.
- 6:17 p.m.

New schedules on the Mascouche line
Starting June 25, 2018
2. Some departures cancelled from or to Bois-Franc / Roxboro-Pierrefonds
Train users in the Bois-Franc and Roxboro-Pierrefonds sectors should note that three departures in the peak-time direction and one departure in the off-peak direction on the Deux-Montagnes line are cancelled:
- Train 914 leaving the Roxboro-Pierrefonds station at 8:35 a.m. to Central Station
- Train 902 leaving the Bois-Franc station at 9:00 a.m. to Central Station
- Train 915 leaving Central Station at 4:05 p.m. to Roxboro-Pierrefonds station
- Train 952 leaving the Deux-Montagnes station at 5:20 p.m. to Central Station
To make up for these departures, the STM will add extra bus services in the affected sectors.
For users near the Mont-Royal or Canora stations, we recommend taking the trains from or to Mascouche that also stop at the Mont-Royal and Canora stations (see the schedule), if your personal or professional situation so allows.
3. “Trial OPUS” to help users transition
Since the work on the REM will ultimately result in the closing of the Du Ruisseau-Central Station segment in 2020*, the transit companies are taking anticipatory measures. On June 19 and 21, a 10-trip “Trial OPUS” will be offered to holders of annual and monthly TRAIN passes on the Deux-Montagnes line.
The goal is to help you transition to a new commuting routine. This card will allow you to try out new routes and determine which public transit services best suit your needs (e.g. exo bus network, Laval buses, Montréal metro).
For more details about this offer, check out the exo website (ex RTM – Réseau de transport métropolitain).
You can also plan your trip using the following tools:
- Google Maps (all transit companies)
- Plan your trip with exo
- Plan your trip with the STL
- Plan your trip with the STM
* The segment between Deux-Montagnes and Du Ruisseau will remain in service in 2020.
