REM stations official names released

REM stations

The Reseau express metropolitain – REM releases official names of stations of its 67-kilometre network across the greater Montreal area. After a rigorous process establishing toponomy of the REM network, eight stations changed names to be better integrated into the metropolitan transport grid. A joint announcement concerning the Griffintown station will be made later with the city of Montreal.

With assistance from experts in the field, guiding principles were established for the entire network:

  • For existing service points (stations or terminals) that are directly connected to the REM or converted by the REM, we maintained the existing names so as not to create confusion in landmarks for users. 
  • For new REM service points, we used the geolocation of stations (intersections or city names) so that network users can quickly recognize their location. 
  • Avoid copying station or bus terminal names from existing networks that will not be connected to the REM. 

Cities and partners were also consulted during this process.
