The Bois-Franc station will replace the train station with the same name. Strategically located at the centre of the network, this is the last station before the REM breaks off into three branches (Airport, Sainte-Anne-de-Bellevue and Deux-Montagnes).
Type of station
The station is located within the quadrangle formed by Marcel-Laurin, Keller, Henri-Bourassa and Toupin boulevards.
To the south, the station will be accessible from the newly built Wilfrid-Reid Street, via Marcel-Laurin Boulevard. To the north, the station will be accessible from Keller Street and Marcel-Laurin Boulevard.
