Following CDPQ Infra’s announcement of delays in putting into service the different hubs of the Réseau express métropolitain (REM), Mobility Montréal partners confirm that mitigation measures will be maintained until late 2024.
This is made possible through the concerted efforts and cooperation of Mobility Montréal partners, which have been working on the measures since 2018.
The ministère des Transports, the transit agencies, exo, the Autorité régionale de transport métropolitain and CDPQ Infra have made every effort to develop mitigation measures to facilitate the commute of exo5 Mascouche and exo6 Deux-Montagnes train lines users. Consequently, the mitigation measures implemented on May 11 and enhanced on November 2 will be maintained until the opening of the section to Du Ruisseau station. Other measures will be maintained until the REM work is completed and will be enhanced or adjusted as needed.
Over the last months, work has been carried out to implement effective and competitive solutions to cut travel times and offer public transit users several route options. The solutions include the development of bus bypass shoulders on strategic arterial roads such as autoroutes 640, 13, 15 and 25, the addition of two new shuttles to downtown and the Côte-Vertu metro station, and the addition of several new departures during peak hours.
The temporary public transit network represents an investment of $192M from the gouvernement du Québec and CDPQ Infra.
