The Réseau express métropolitain (REM) is an electric train project with four lines in the metropolitan region. It will be integrated into the existing public transit systems to provide service adapted to user’s daily needs.
Three new shuttles
As of May 11, 2020, major work will begin on the REM in the Mont-Royal Tunnel, and no trains will be able to use it before 2022. This means that trains on the exo6 Deux-Montagnes line will only travel between Deux-Montagnes and Bois-Franc stations. Here are some options for getting downtown.
Deux-Montagnes train users :
- 964 Trainbus Bois-Franc/Côte-Vertu (direct link between the Bois-Franc train station and Côte-Vertu métro station). More information
- 968 Trainbus Roxboro/Côte-Vertu (serves Roxboro-Pierrefonds and Sunnybrooke train station areas) . More information
- 919 Trainbus Acadie/Mont-Royal/Namur (serves the Canora/Mont-Royal train station area).
Mascouche train users :
Three trains departing in the morning and afternoon will take an alternative route to bypass the mountain and reach Central Station downtown. The other trains will stop at the Ahuntsic station. Here are options for getting downtown :
- The Green line : Several express bus lines will take you to the métro network.
- Transfer at Sauvé : You can also take the train and transfer at the Sauvé train station to the métro. However, expect the métro to be very busy.

Other projects underway on the STM's territory
The Réseau express métropolitain (REM) has begun building its future Édouard-Montpetit station. The new station will be located at the site of the Marie-Victorin entrance building.
Before demolishing the entrance building, we will close it to recover equipment such as:
- Light fixtures
- Butterfly doors
- Wall finishes
The above equipment will be used for maintaining métro system facilities.
The station’s two other entrances will remain open. For your safety, use the entrance located at the corner of Vincent D’Indy Avenue and Édouard-Montpetit Boulevard.
Did you know that...?
The new station will connect to the Montréal métro’s Blue line and will be one of the deepest stations in North America.
Implementation of Trainbus 968 to make up for weekend service interruptions on the Deux-Montagnes line.
Service is suspended on Fridays and weekends.
A new, temporary shuttle service called 968 Trainbus/Côte-Vertu shuttle provides a direct link (non-stop) between Côte-Vertu métro station and the stops on Gouin Boulevard, west of highway A‑13. These stops include the Roxboro-Pierrefonds and Sunnybrooke train stations.
The shuttle service starts at the Roxboro-Pierrefonds station as of 8 p.m. on Fridays and weekends.
What if the shuttle doesn’t go near my home?
