Project Name: Montréal-Trudeau International Airport REM Station
Partners: Government of Canada, Government of Québec, Aéroports de Montréal
Location: Greater Montréal Area, Québec
Participation: $300 million (financial close)
Description: The project involves the construction of a Réseau express métropolitain (“REM”) station at the Montréal-Trudeau International Airport. The new station and rail connection will link to the 67 kilometre long, 26 station REM light rail transit network currently under construction in the Greater Montréal area.
The Canada Infrastructure Bank’s investment in this project builds on its previous $1.3 billion investment in the REM.
A fully-accessible REM station will be an important public asset providing fast, convenient service to and from the airport regardless of local vehicle traffic and weather. For the first time, Montréal joins other Canadian cities which have modern airport-rail links. Thousands of airport and airline employees who work in and around the airport daily will commute more easily.
The new station will also reduce traffic congestion in the area and offer an environmentally sustainable transit option between the airport and Greater Montréal area. Québecers and visitors to the Greater Montréal area will benefit from this station for generations to come.
Benefits of the CIB Involvement
Building a station and rail access has significant economic and environmental benefits to the airport, the city and region. The CIB’s investment will allow the REM station to be built and enhance the value of the airport and its services.
