Panama Station. The Panama Station will be located in the middle of Highway 10. It is distinguished with the integration of a skylight into its architecture and its large public square. It is also where the largest bus terminal in the network is located, which services the agglomeration of Longueuil. A canopy, not shown in the illustration, will connect the bus terminal to the station entrance. Image for indicative purposes only.

The REM on the South Shore

Work

Work in progress 

Start of testing on the South Shore 

The first tests of the REM in automated mode are being conducted on the South Shore, on a 3.5-km section of the REM route between Brossard station and Milan Boulevard. This specific zone is called the “representative segment.” All system components (telecommunications, electrical system, etc.) will be tested there in 2021, under various weather conditions.

Installation of tracks and electrical system in the middle of Highway 10

The REM will run down the middle of Highway 10, where the reserved bus lanes are currently located. Work to install the REM’s tracks and electrical systems is ongoing.   

 

Construction of the Brossard, Du Quartier and Panama stations

The Brossard and Du Quartier stations are very advanced, and the interior design work there is continuing. At Brossard station, construction of a bus terminal and of the maintenance and control centres is under way. At Panama, work on the station’s outer shell is intensifying, as is construction of the bus terminal. 

 

Blvd. Lapinière and Montée Gobeil Sector  

Work is being carried out for the construction of a new access overpass to the Brossard station from Highway 10 westbound (Montréal). Construction of the pillar and abutments of the viaduct will continue this year.

FAQ

South Shore

Departure frequency. The REM will be in service 20 hours/day, 7 days/week, with departures on the South Shore every 2.5 minutes during peak hours, and every 5 minutes during off-peak hours. 

Double the capacity. The REM will significantly increase network capacity. Once it is commissioned, twice as many public transit customers will be able to cross the Champlain Bridge to Montréal. 

Greater reliability for the trip home. Thanks to its dedicated corridor, the REM will take you from downtown to: 
the Panama Station in less than 10 minutes, Du Quartier in 13 minutes, and Brossard in 15 minutes. The congestion that buses currently deal with when leaving downtown will be a thing of the past – make way for reliable, fast and frequent service! 

Connections to metro lines. The REM will be connected to three current Montréal metro lines: the blue line via Édouard-Montpetit Station, the green line via McGill Station, and the orange line, via Central Station. You can also get to the airport, the West Island and the North Shore. 

Yes, the REM will run on the central deck of the new Champlain Bridge, replacing the reserved bus lane. To access the bridge, the REM will run down the middle of Highway 10, between the two travel lanes. On the other side of the bridge, it will stop at Île-des-Sœurs and then continue its route toward downtown, running over a new REM bridge that will cross the Île-des-Sœurs channel. 

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. 

Until the REM’s planned commissioning in 2021, the existing Chevrier terminal will continue to operate.  

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.
