Super map, I've always wanted something like this. One of the things that annoys me most with the REM maps is that they don't operate on 45 degree angles like the Metro. What software did you use to make this?

Also, one request if it's not too hard, could you post a version that is only metro + light metro (i.e. Metro + REM), thanks!

Superbe carte, on a besoin d'une meilleure signalisation unifiée avec l'addition du REM. La cartes actuelle du REM ne suit pas les angles a 45°  et gâche l'apparence classique des cartes de métro. Quel logiciel as-tu utilisé pour cette carte?

Aussi, peux-tu nous rendre une version avec uniquement le métro et le REM, merci!

I used Illustrator

I'd like to see a metro line or rem line along cote-vertu or Henri bourassa that goes East-West. I feel like it's an important void. Something that would ultimately replace the Mascouche train or at least a portion of it. Also like three different North/South tramway along des sources, st charles and st-jean boulevard.

I was thinking more like the APM lines in Singapore (they call it the “light rail”) that make a butterfly route to feed people from the densely-populated HDBs to the main MRT line. So if I’m allowed to fantasize, I could see a tram or electric BRT doing a big loop from REM/Fairview up St-Jean, east on Pierrefonds, and down des Sources to the REM/Sources station. A shuttle buss across the New Île-Bizard Bridge would feed the tram!

Interesting to note that this 28 km system (including a third loop not shown above that’s on the northwest corner of the island) handles 180,000 passengers a day using 25m APM “trains”.

So, The Big Deblockage? 😁

That name seriously needs to be buried where it belongs. It's such a bad play on word. I really can't help but have a mental image of a plunger in a clogged toilet every time I read those words.

A l'étude/under study.

Présentement ou tablettées/currently or shelved.

"Under studied" would kind of imply that options were inadequately//incompletely examined, and that the findings were inconclusive and/or worthless.  I presume that this was not the meaning that the author had in mind when he created this thread.

Il serait très utile de faire une distinction entre des projets/options dont nous savons qu'ils font présentement l'objet d'une étude sérieuse (même s'il s'agit d'une nouvelle évaluatation sur de nouvelles bases), et les autres qui sont des reliques du passé et/ou des idées reléguées aux oubliettes, ou encore des nouvelles idées qui surgissent de tous bords tous côtés mais qui ne sont pas encore considérées sérieusement.

I've said it on other threads, the government has put the REM de l'Est on the table, but we also know that Taschereau is being studied by CDPQ0-I. The reason why you need to have multiple projects being planned simultaneously is the immobilism that Montreal has suffered from theses last few decades. You've seen the reaction to REM de l'Est. If the opposition to that project is just too strong, or if it needs more time in the cooker, Legault has left himself just enough runway to change direction and say "we're doing Taschereau instead." I think that Legault might actually succeed in keeping things moving where most other government have failed miserably.
