REM: Service outage for the fourth time in a row

REM: Service outage for the fourth time in a row

A fourth problem in four days paralyzed the Réseau Express Métropolitain (REM) network on Saturday, between the Panama and Île-des-Sœurs stations. The high temperature has already caused ice to fall on the track.

The outage was announced on the REM X account around 2:30pm on Saturday.

“An object on the track is causing an interruption in service on the network between Panama and El de Sures stations. Bus service is available between these two stations. Normal service should gradually resume around 2:45 p.m.,” we read in the first update.

Ultimately, the REM restart time continued to be delayed, and operations were finally gradually resumed at approximately 4:45 p.m.

Restoring service took longer than expected, especially because of the need to bring in a snow removal team to secure the structure of the Samuel de Champlain Bridge, where snow was falling, the REM account said.
