We recently acquired the Deux-Montagnes line, which includes the infrastructures, tracks and other rolling stock, properties, curb lanes, running rights in the Mont-Royal tunnel as well as air rights:
A completely electrified corridor!
This acquisition is part of the Quebec government’s electrification strategy, which aims for 95% of trips on the public transit network in Quebec to be made with electricity by 2030. The Deux-Montagnes line accounts for half the total ridership of the commuter rail network managed by the AMT.
The AMT will have greater autonomy to develop its projects, increase flexibility on this line and ensure better service to customers.
