Going electric!

The Plan d'action 2011-2020 sur les véhicules électriques of the Quebec government aims to reduce our greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions and our dependence on oil. By 2030, the plan’s ambitious target is for 95% of trips on the public transit network in Quebec to be made with electricity. The AMT is an important actor in this action plan!

The Electric Circuit

The Electric Circuit is a network of hundreds of public recharging stations for electric vehicles installed all over Quebec. As a founding partner of the project, the AMT installed 40 stations in about 20 of its park-and-ride lots for Greater Montréal public transit users. The Electric Circuit is the first network of public recharging stations for electric vehicles in Canada.

Electrification of public transport services

Over the last few years, the AMT undertook several actions to meet the objective of progressively electrifying public transit set by the Quebec government:

  • Acquisition of 20 new dual-mode locomotives
  • Implementation of electric charging stations in partnership with Hydro-Québec
  • Feasibility study on the electrification of the train network
  • Acquisition of the Deux-Montagnes line, which is completely electrified

 The AMT is also working to meet the government objectives to electrify 95% of public transit networks by 2030.


Electrification of commuter train services

One of the five commuter train lines, acquired by the AMT in February 2014, the Deux-Montagnes line, is already completely electrified. It’s an exception in the Canadian rail landscape! As for the Train de l’Est, a third of its route is ready to receive systems that ensure electric power.
