The REM (Réseau express métropolitain) is currently under construction. It will include 26 stations crossing the greater Montreal area over a distance of nearly 67 km. The future Île-des-Soeurs station, located at the foot of the project, will be the new gateway to the South Shore or downtown Montreal. It will be in service 20 hours a day, 7 days a week, with frequencies to Île-des-Soeurs every 2.5 minutes during peak periods and every 5 minutes the rest of the time.
The 16 PDC project, named after its address, is located a few steps away from Place du Commerce in the north of the island, where restaurants, banks, services, businesses, bike paths and parks constitute the essence of the neighbourhood.
The new configuration of Autoroute 15 and the Champlain Bridge will allow quick access to the Bonaventure Autoroute for residents of 16 PDC, giving them access to downtown Montreal in a few minutes.
