By integrating into existing public transit networks in Montreal the REM will create a connected transit system linking downtown Montreal, the South Shore, West Island, North Shore and Pierre Elliott Trudeau International Airport. The REM is the largest public transit project undertaken in Québec in the last 50 years. The first trains are expected to start running in 2021 from the South Shore to Bonaventure-Central Station. Then, the other branches of the network will be gradually put into service in 2022-2023. The REM will provide reliable service 20 hours a day, 7 days a week.
