The REM Montreal Project is a new automated light rail network. The Réseau Express Métropolitain will include 26 stations and span the greater Montréal area with 67 km of tracks–by comparison, the current metro network is 71 km long.
The REM is the largest public transit project undertaken in Québec in the last fifty years. The first trains are expected to start running in 2022 from the South Shore to Bonaventure-Central Station. Then, the other branches of the network will be gradually put into service in 2023-2024.
