Overview- REM de l'Est
REM de l’Est
As part of its agreement with the Government of Quebec, CDPQ Infra was mandated on May 6, 2019, to propose a structuring public transit solution to meet the clear mobility needs in the East and Northeast of the Island of Montreal, while allowing for the development of major economic hubs. This is how the proposal for the REM de l’Est project was launched on December 15, 2020.
During the planning phase of the project, CDPQ Infra released an architectural proposal in collaboration with renowned Quebec and international firms and conducted detailed technical studies following the analysis of several scenarios. It also submitted a governance proposal on urban development. This proposal and all of its documentation are still available for consultation.
With the announcement made on May 2, 2022 by the Government of Quebec, establishing a new project team to respond to different transportation needs identified by the City of Montreal, the mandate given to CDPQ Infra ends.

The proposed light metro system will have 32 km of track and serve 23 new stations, providing fast and comfortable transit options that link city residents with boroughs in the east end of Montreal. Users of the REM de l’Est will be able to easily travel as far as Rivières-des-Prairies - Pointe-aux-Trembles, Montréal-Nord and downtown Montréal while discovering new destinations and the attractions of a territory with infinite potential.
How can we integrate an efficient and attractive transit system in eastern and northeastern Montréal while also offering a lasting solution to the problem of solo driving?
The REM de l’Est extension aligns with the economic recovery of Québec and Montréal. This major project will generate significant economic and environmental benefits.
