Montréal-Trudeau International Airport REM Station

Public Transit
Greater Montréal, Québec
$300 million
(Under construction)
Government of Canada, Government of Québec, Aéroports de Montréal

Quicker and easier alternative to get to the airport from downtown Montréal

The project involves the construction of a Réseau express métropolitain station at the Montréal-Trudeau International Airport.

Fast facts

Environmentally sustainable transit option
Reduce traffic congestion
Optimize usage of the REM
Modern airport-rail link

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.

Our investment in this project builds on our 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. Quebecers and visitors to the Greater Montréal area will benefit from this station for generations to come.

Benefits of CIB involvement

Building a station and rail access has significant economic and environmental benefits to the airport, the city and region. Our investment will allow the REM station to be built and enhance the value of the airport and its services.

The agreement between the governments of Quebec and Canada, and the Canada Infrastructure Bank, is the realization of a strategic project for Montréal and will make it possible for the Montréal-Trudeau International Airport to rely on modern infrastructures. I believe that all Montrealers, Quebeckers and travellers are looking forward to using the new REM station at this airport, which is in fact a window on all of Quebec.

By responding to the request for loan financing, the Canada Infrastructure Bank and the Québec government – along with the Canadian government through its generous direct contribution – have demonstrated exceptional solidarity in this matter. We can now finally say that the REM will be coming to Montréal–Trudeau International Airport. Their financial contribution was essential for the construction of our station. For Aéroports de Montréal, it was unimaginable to pass up on a project that will provide a reliable and sustainable public transit option serving the Montréal–Trudeau International Airport, as is the case in all major cities around the world. The airport station is highly strategic for the REM network since it will not only enhance Montréal’s competitiveness but also ensure the attractiveness of the airport for passengers and employees in the community. The REM project is also a structuring project that will benefit the entire Québec community.

In the context of the pandemic, which had a major impact on airports, the contribution of the Government of Quebec and the other financial partners, is essential. Montréal, just like any other big city, should have its own intermodal mass transit network. This station and the rest of the REM roll-out clearly represents the strong links of public transportation system in the greater Montréal region. This is why we believe that a direct access to the passenger terminal through the REM, and therefore the construction of this station, is crucial.
