The REM will be a new integrated network linking downtown Montreal, South Shore, West Island, North Shore, and the airport. Once completed, the REM will be the fourth largest automated transportation system in the world after Singapore (82 km), Dubai (80 km) and Vancouver (68 km). For the metropolitan area, the REM also represents the largest public transportation infrastructure since the Montreal metro, inaugurated in 1966.

Combined with existing transportation networks (metro, trains and buses), the REM opens a new era of public transit development in the Greater Montreal Area:

- 27 stations-67 kilometres-20 hours/day-7 days/week

- This constitutes Quebec\'s first public-public partnership

The new network represents an investment of approximately $6.3 billion. Contracts were to be awarded for the project in February 2018.
