The Train de l’Est is intended to make up for the lack of permanent mass transit infrastructure serving Montreal East and the North-East Ring (Repentigny, Terrebonne and Mascouche) of the metropolitan region. The AMT awarded Bombardier a contract for the acquisition of 160 new two-storey cars, 30 of which will be assigned to the Train de l’Est. AMT (with New Jersey Transit) also awarded Bombardier a contract for the acquisition of five dual-mode (diesel and electric powered) locomotives. Given the proximity of the route to General Dynamics propane plant, a protective berm and a metal structure with a roof will be built along the section that crosses that site.
