Stations in this sector
REM testing on the South Shore
REM tests in automated mode are underway, from the Brossard station to the Central Station. All the components of the system (telecommunications, electrical system, passenger information, etc.) are being tested there, under different weather conditions. Keep your eyes open if you are driving on Highway 10 in Brossard, you might just see a REM car in action! Once the dynamic tests are completed, in 2023, a trial run will take place to test commercial service. For about a month, the system will run on schedule, approximately 20 hours a day, but without passengers. Once the required reliability is achieved, the REM will be able to open to the public.
5 Critical Pre-Commissioning Milestones
Overview of tests to follow closely this year.
Construction of infrastructure
All of the REM's infrastructure on the South Shore will be completed by the end of 2022. The first section, between Central Station and Brossard station, is scheduled to be put into service in the spring of 2023.
A station at Chevrier is not planned within this project. Significant technical constraints prevent a station from being built in front of the current bus terminal.
After the REM is commissioned, the bus station and park-and-ride lot at the Chevrier site will be moved south of Highway 30, to the REM’s Brossard Station. The agglomeration of Longueuil aims to keep the Chevrier sector as a transit-oriented development (TOD) area; the objective is to provide public transport service for this sector, with a method to be determined. To travel downtown, riders in the Chevrier sector will be directed to the REM station closest to their departure point.
