The REM Has Released New Renderings Of Its Busiest Stations & They Look Stunning (PHOTOS)

Now that we've all seen what the REM trains are going to look like, what about the stations?

After the renderings of the West Island station were recently released to the public, people have been eagerly anticipating what the REM's busiest downtown stations might look like once they're done. 

Well, guess what? We got a little peek.

The REM anticipates that its busiest stations will be McGill, the Gare Centrale and Édouard-Montpetit and has designed them with this in mind.

The Gare Centrale will be completely integrated into the existing infrastructure and will have direct access to the STM's orange line and the underground city.

McGill station will be located directly under McGill College Avenue in downtown Montreal, connected to two of the largest shopping centres in the city, the Eaton Centre and the Place Montréal Trust.

The REM tells MTL Blog that McGill "station will provide a historic connection across the mountain and to the university poles. From McGill station, you can get to Édouard-Montpetit in 3 minutes!"

As for Édouard-Montpetit, the REM says that it'll be one of the most "distinctive" stations on the network.

In fact, the station will be the second deepest in North America. To counter the effect of feeling underground, the station will include plenty of glass, recalling the theme of "transparency" throughout the network's station designs.

The REM is set to be completely finished by 2024.
