Montreal's Light-Rail Network Will Be Open In Summer 2021

Last year, the people of Montreal received some very good news, especially for those who happen to live outside of the city's core.

Montreal is getting a brand new light rail line that will provide direct transport to new areas such as: The West Island, the South Shore, the North Shore, and The Airport from the downtown area.

The new rail, made up of 26 stations in total was supposed to be completed by 2020, however the Caisse de Depot announced this morning that the project may be delayed.

BREAKING: REM light-rail project for the Montreal area will now cost $6.3B, will enter service in the summer of 2021 instead of the fall of 2020, Caisse de Depot announces.

So I guess we're going to have to be a little more patient, and hopefully they won't be delaying the project any further.
