Light rail transit has gained popularity in recent years as a form of urban transportation, and the Réseau Express Métropolitain is slated to be Montreal's first LRT network. The rail system is being designed by three world-class architecture firms -- Lemay, Perkins + Will, and Bisson Fortin -- so it will combine aesthetic excellence with the efficiency of modern transit theory.
The island of Montreal is reasonably well connected, but the outer reaches of the metropolitan area have not had the same degree of connectivity. The Réseau Express Métropolitain will not only put the city's north and south shores in touch with the downtown core, but it will also create a far more convenient line to the international airport.
