An ongoing dialogue with citizens
In the spring of 2016, CDPQ Infra began a consultation process involving various stakeholders in the Réseau électrique métropolitain (REM) project as well as the general public. Information sessions and discussions were held with citizens, and more will be organized in the future, in all areas affected by the REM.
THE REM AND YOU
For summer 2017, our team is going out to meet public transit clients who will be served by the REM. Future clients and citizens with concerns about the project can ask questions and receive targeted information.
Planned activities for summer 2017
Public open house evenings in the Greater Montreal area
In order to present the people of greater Montréal with its proposed REM and encourage discussion, CDPQ Infra already held two open house tours: a first series June 2016 and a second at last November and December of 2016 (learn more). These meetings are an important step in CDPQ Infra’s plans to initiate a long-term dialogue with the population concerned by the project. Other activities are planned in 2017 to reach the population.

Frequently Asked Questions
Open houses : meeting citizens
CDPQ Infra has met with over 3,000 citizens in 2016 at 12 open house evenings to discuss the REM. These events allowed the general public to ask questions, make suggestions and talk to CDPQ Infra experts. This video summarizes these meetings and presents some of the comments received.
What does the REM have in store for you?
The REM will change how people get around in the Greater Montréal area by providing a brand new public transit network. It will feature universal accessibility, frequent trains, stations in modern, light-filled buildings, Wi-Fi throughout the network, and more! Discover the REM experience and many of the features of this new automated light rail transit system.
Why was the LRT technology chosen for the REM?
A review of various forms of transportation shows that LRT (light rail transit) systems combine the most benefits, to efficiently meet the identified transportation needs. The LRT is a modern, fast and reliable form of transportation. It also provides great flexibility, particularly in terms of frequency, and adapts to local needs.
What are the features of the REM route?
The REM will be based on a major line running through the heart of Montréal, with four branch lines in the metropolitan area. Discover these four branches – Sainte-Anne-de-Bellevue, Deux-Montagnes, the South Shore and the Airport – and learn more about how REM routes will be integrated into their urban environments. Since this video was first posted online, three new stations have been added to the REM network, for a total of 27 stations.
