This is only meant to be a temporary station due to highway construction, but it may become permanent.

Construction photos were posted to AMT flickr account on September 1:

Three stations added to Montreal REM
Friday, November 25, 2016



CDPQ Infra, a subsidiary of Canadian institutional fund manager Caisse de Dépôt et Placement du Québec, announced on November 25 that it has revised the specification for its proposed Montreal Metropolitan Express automated metro network to include three additional stations

McGill station in the city centre would be built directly beneath the existing metro station between Eaton Centre and Place Montréal Trust, while Édouard-Montpetit near the university and hospitals in Côte-de-Neiges will also be built adjacent to an existing metro station, with platforms 70m below street level. CDPQ Infra estimates that the journey time between these two stations could be reduced from around 30 minutes using the existing metro Green, Orange and Blue lines to just three minutes on the REM, while relieving pressure on this section of the Orange Line

Montreal REM project on course for August tender
Wednesday, May 17, 2017



IRJ at UITP Global Summit 2017: CDPQ Infra's ambitious plans to develop Metropolitan Electric Network (REM), a new 67km double-track automated light metro in Montreal, remain on schedule in spite of some alterations to the project which have increased overall costs to $C 6.04bn ($US 4.4bn)

Speaking to IRJ in Montreal, Mr Macky Tall, CDPQ Infra president and CEO, said that following extensive consultation with transport operators in Montreal and elsewhere, and with around 3000 members of the general public, it was decided to improve the integration between REM project and Montreal's existing metro network. As a result, three new stations have been added to the preliminary design at Edouard-Montpetit, McGill, and Bonaventure Gare Centrale

A modest proposal for an integrated transport map of Montreal:

- Metro and Rail on the same map
- Schematized landscape
- Downtown area schematized but close to real geography
