Gare Centrale

Gare Centrale is, for now, the Northern Terminus of the Réseau Express Métropolitain. Once the network expands North, it will be come a through station in the core segment of the network. The station is located on the former platforms of track 9 through 12 which were used for EXO (former AMT services until their rebranding in 2018) through the Mount Royal Tunnel. To allow for the construction of the REM and its station in Gare Centrale, EXO Deux-Montagnes closed between Bois-Franc and Gare Centrale on May 11, 2020.

To create additional space for the island platform and create a waiting area for passengers, tracks 10 and 11 were infilled for the widening of the platform. Trains circulate on track 9 and track 12. Track 7 and 8 can be used for train storage as needed for operations. Due to its location, the station has multiple access points for passengers: from the south, through Place Bonaventure (unidentified entry, but identified exit) or from the North through Gare Centrale's Salle des Pas Perdus, or through the hallway that connects Gare Centrale with the Bonnaventure Metro Station.

Once outside the REM station, passengers can connect with various other services: exo3, Amtrak, VIA Rail, Mansfield Bus Terminal, STM bus routes, the Orange Line of the Metro at Bonnaventure and the Downtown Bus Terminal. All of those connections are done outside of the fare paid area.

Gare Centrale is also where passengers can find the customer service desk for the REM, located at the northern end of the station.

UNIQUE FEATURES
  • Unlike Brossard, Gare Centrale will only be temporary terminus for the REM: once the Anse-À-L'Orme (A3) and Deux-Montagnes (A4) branches open, services will continue through the Mount Royal Tunnel, transforming the terminus station into a through station.
  • Of the five initial stations of the REM, it is the only one that had a previous railway vocation. Over the years, it has been used for commuter and intercity passenger services.
  • Track 7 and 8 were formally used by Canadian National as a maintenance track for rolling stock repairs, including the UAC TurboTrain that operated between Montreal and Toronto. Nowadays, those tracks will be used for storage of spares or for the removal of disabled trains during service outages.
  • Through the Underground City (RÉSO), this station will connect with the future McGill Station via Place Ville-Marie and the Eaton Centre, as well as both the Green and Orange line of the Metro (only Bonnaventure is indicated as a connection on the map).
  • At its opening, the station does not feature faregates. As of writing, they are expected to be installed by the end of Fall 2023.
  • At the platform level, passengers can observe two different colors of tiles: the darker grey tiles indicate where track 10 and 11 were formally located while the lighter tile denotes the original platform locations. The original concrete structural elements were restored to act as a central divider within the station and can also be observed on the other platforms throughout Gare Centrale.
  • The ceilling was designed to be an open grid where all components are exposed as a nod to the complexity of the site and its various interconnexions with the surrounding facilities and buildings.
  • Due to its proximity to the other platforms at Gare Centrale, it is possible to observe VIA and EXO trains while they are in station and departing.

In additiona to the station, the adjacent bus loop connects passengers from the other communities on the South-Shore, as well as the passengers from various parts of Longueuil. preparatory work started on March 15, 2018 with the actual construction starting in the Fall 2018.

Starting in January 2021, testing began on the segment between Brossard and just south of Panama.

On July 28, 2023, the station was used for the inauguration ceremony of the first segment of the REM between Gare Centrale and Brossard. Medias and dignitaries departed from the station for the first inaugural train on this day. Brossard was also the first departure on Monday July 31, 2023 at 5:30AM with the first train to depart a station on the network.

  • The station is also located on the site where the Brossard Light Maintenance and Storage Facility maintains the current fleet of the REM until the finalization of the Anse-A-L'Orme and Deux-Montagnes branches. Once trains are removed from service, either at the end of the day or for other reasons, trains continue behind the station and enter the car wash before returning to the yard.
  • Brossard is the only station with three platforms: this allows for easier turn-around operations for trains once higher frequencies are implemented on the line. Platform can vary throughout the day and also depend on whether or not the train is returning to the yard after dropping off passengers.
  • To incentivize transit usage into downtown Montreal, 2,948 parking spaces are available at the station. 2,099 spaces are free and an additional 849 are paid eihter daily or by obtaining a monthly permit from Indigo. 60 charging stations are located along the north side of the station in the free parking area. There is also a drop-off area located between the bus loop and station.
  • The bus loop has 21 quays to service routes from EXO and the RTL. It is also built to support the growth of climbing vegetation around its perimeter.

PUBLIC ARTWORK

les passagers is two sculptures (diptych) by David Armstrong VI that will be installed at the entrances of the station and the bus loop. Each station will be more than 4m tall and made of cast bronze.

From the REM website:

For the Brossard station, David Armstrong VI has created a set of two sculptures (diptych) named les passagers. The artist is intrigued by the very essence of travelling by train.This diptych combines aggregates of cast bronze, undulating ribbons and alternating vibrant colours, pulling our gaze between reality and an interpretation of the interlaced forms. In the artist's vision, these two plant-like and animal-like figures, but also clearly human with their suitcase or backpack, belong both to the past and the future. David Armstrong VI has sculpted the undulating forms as if they were alive. It could be believed that the forms are like two fearless travellers from another time, swept along by a force in perpetual movement.

Panama

Panama Station is located in the median of Autoroute 10 south of Mall Champlain. This station acts as an important multi-modal hub for passengers traveling on RTL buses heading for downtown Montreal.

Before construction started for the station in Fall 2019, the site was already a bus station opened in 1985, initially located closed to Mall Champlain. It was brought closer to the site of the REM station to facilitate transfers. In 2006, a busway was built in the median of Autoroute 10, with an underpass on the North side of the highway, allowing buses a direct connection with the Autoroute. This site was then built into Panama Station, with a new bus loop located closer to the station.

UNIQUE FEATURES
  • Due to its particuliar location in an existing busway, the station only has one entrance which is accessed through the Autoroute 10 underpasses. As such, passenges go up to platform level using either the stairs or central elevator.
  • The former section where buses traveled is located ot the North (under the westbound lanes, towards the bus terminal). A second tunnel was built under the eastbound lanes for pedestrian connections to the neighborhood and shopping plaza.
  • The new bus loop includes 30 platforms (seperated in 3 banks) with connections to EXO and RTL routes. The new facility includes bathrooms, a covered walkway to the REM station and a ticketing office. The bus loop opened on July 11, 2022.
  • To improve connectivity to the station, 200 bike racks are available at the station. 100 of those spots are covered.
  • There is also 304 parking spots (227 are free, the remainder are paid) which includes 4 EV charging stations, 6 accesible spots and 8 for carpooling to incentivize transit usage, as well as a kiss and ride for passenger drop-off. Passengers can acquire a monthly or daily pass for the paid spots.
  • A commercial space is also available in the bus loop, though it is not currently occupied (as of August 6, 2023)
PUBLIC ARTWORK

Un voyage sans fin au-delà du présent is an art instalation by artist Chih-Chien Wang which will be installed in the underpass of the station. Once installed, the 8 photographs will be a structure 13.8m long by 4m high using metal lighbox to illuminate the images. The installation is expected ot be done by the end of 2023.

From the REM website:

Chih-Chien Wang is very familiar with the neighbourhood around the Panama station. He visits it regularly and views it as a journey through the various dialects, cultures and culinary specialities. It is like a physical and metaphorical portal allowing him to navigate time and the seasons. To pay homage to his roots and this site that is so particular, Wang dove into his own aerial photographs taken when he was travelling by plane from Montréal to other countries. To these, he has interspersed photographs shot in his Montréal studio of dust particles caught up in the wind. The spectator travels therefore from the micro to the macro, from the infinitely small to the infinitely vast. From the personal to the universal.

Île-des-Sœurs

Ile-des-Soeurs is located in the median of Autoroute 10. This station is the first mass-transit station to exist on the island and is located right next to the headquarters of Bell Canada, as well as various new residential developments located around the island. While the station is at ground level, it is still elevated when compared to the surrounding areas. Trains going towards downtown Montreal use an elevated guideway over the westbound lanes of Autoroute 10, before passing next to the VIA Rail Montreal Maintenance Centre.

Construction at the station started in Fall 2019 as construction for the new Sameul de Champlain bridge was mostly completed. The new bridge also included the required space to allow for the construction of the REM in the middle of the structure.

As of it's opening on July 31, 2023, it is the final stop before reaching the intial terminus of the line at Gare Centrale. However, a station will be built in Griffintown at a future date.

UNIQUE FEATURES
  • Unlike Du Quartier and Panama, the two other stations built in the median of Autoroute 10, this station features side platforms for each direction of travel.
  • The station only has one entrance located under Autoroute A10. As with Panama, passengers must go up to reach platform level.
  • As a styling element to recall the Samuel de Champlain bridge, white vertical metal bars are located on the outside walls of the station as a visual cue to the haubans that support the central section of the bridge.
  • The construction of the station in its current site was made possible with the reconstruction of the Champlain bridge which was completed in 2019. 
  • The station features a small bus loop for STM buses that connect Ile des Soeurs and Verdun, and a passenger drop-off area on the south of the station.
  • Located on the northside of the underpass, passengers can access the multi-use pathways through the Samuel de Champlain bridge which offers unprecedented views of the St-Lawrence, Downtown Montreal and the South Shore.
  • While the stations on the South Shore have an orange / gold accent color, to recall the agricultural past of the lands on which Brossard and Longueuil are built, Ile-des-Soeurs is the first station that features white accents that are found throughout the fixtures, landscaping and ceramic throughout the station, a common element among most stations of the main segment located on the Island.
  • To the south of the station, a public plaza with a splash pad will be opened at a future date.
