Maintaining our diverse rolling stock fleet is a priority to ensure the reliability of the commuter rail service, guarantee its future development, and maintain the quality of the service offered to a growing customer base.
Ridership on our commuter train network has more than doubled over the last 20 years, from nearly 6.9M passengers a year in 1996 to 17.8M in 2014. To meet this growing demand, the rolling stock fleet has expanded to more than 300 units, including electric, diesel and dual-mode locomotives.
Two centres for two distinct networks
Given the lack of connections between the CN and CP networks, the AMT opted for two locations: the first for trains operated on the CN network and the second for trains on the CP network.
For efficiency purposes, the maintenance sites must be located in a maximum radius of 10 kilometres from the downtown terminating stations (Lucien-L’Allier and Central Station). The period between peak hours will be used to inspect and maintain trains.
