Réseau express métropolitain (REM)

Early 2020: Closure of the Mont-Royal tunnel and disruption in service of the Deux-Montagnes line between the Bois-Franc station and the Central Station

Two phases of the work will impact users from the North Shore: in 2020, the closure of the Mont-Royal tunnel will cause a partial disruption in service of the commuter train between the Bois-Franc station and the Central Station; in mid-2021, the Deux-Montagnes line will be completely closed.

Mitigation measures in place

  • As of 2020: bus shuttles on reserved lanes between the Bois-Franc station and the Côte-Vertu metro station (users from or going to downtown Montréal)
  • As of mid-2021: bus shuttle service to the Côte-Vertu metro station (users from Deux-Montagnes, Grand-Moulin, Sainte-Dorothée and Île-Bigras stations)
  • Use of freeway shoulders and reserved lanes
  • Preferential measures for buses (bus priority signals, passing lane to avoid queues)
