START OF WORK ON THE RÉSEAU EXPRESS MÉTROPOLITAIN (REM) IN THE AGGLOMÉRATION DE LONGUEUIL
The Réseau express métropolitain is a major public transit project in the Greater Montréal region.
Eventually, this light rail system will include 26 stations, three of which will be located on the territory of the Agglomération de Longueuil: the Rive-Sud, Du Quartier, and Panama stations.
The construction of a temporary terminal, followed by a new bus terminal and the REM’s Panama station will involve major construction work starting in September 2018, and extending until 2021.
Work at the Panama terminal is ongoing with the construction of a temporary terminal (opening date to be confirmed - link to public notices). This work, which involves building a completely new network, is being done in phases through 2021 in order to minimize the impact on users.
The Panama terminal will soon be relocated next to the temporary parking lot, which opened last November. The relocation date is not yet determined, although it is expected to take place in the spring.
The temporary terminal will feature heated bus shelters, a platform, and reserved spaces for carpooling, bikes and individuals with reduced mobility. The bus lines at the terminal have been arranged to ensure users can get on and off the buses quickly and efficiently.
First phase of work in November 2018
Phase 2 of the work: April 2019
