How much does it cost?

Transit fares

REM fares have been integrated in the ARTM fare schedule and also include metro, bus and train access to simplify your travel in the Greater Montréal area.

Transit fare prices vary according to your point of departure, your point of arrival, and the geographic zones you cross on the way (A, B, C or D). At the time of commissioning, and until the installation of gates in the stations in the fall of 2023, you will need to ensure that you validate your ticket using the on-site validators before entering the network.

Avoid waiting in line by purchasing your transit tickets in advance at any existing points of sale. Find a point of sale now

Carte OpusFares are compatible with your OPUS card.

What will my onboard experience be like?

On-board experience

We offer several amenities to make your trips pleasant, easy and efficient.


Staff is deployed across the network at all times. Cars and stations have surveillance and assistance systems that connect directly to the Command Centre.


  • Platform doors to avoid exposure to the weather and the cold
  • REM cars and stations have free Wi-Fi access
  • Cars are air-conditioned in summer and heated in winter
  • Capacity indicators on the platforms tell you where to wait to have space on board
  • Universal access


The network is fully automated and the lack of a driver’s cabin makes space for a front window for passengers to enjoy. It is controlled and monitored by Command Centre staff, 24/7. Travel on dedicated tracks is highly reliable. To learn more, you can watch this explanatory video.
