Réseau Express Métropolitain (REM) on Monday unveiled the first look of their Alstom Metropolis light-rail coaches to carry passengers in Greater Montreal, Canada.

These fully-automated (driverless) 2-coach trains were built at Alstom’s Sri City, Andhra Pradesh facility in India and are part of a $1.8 billion contract signed in 2018 for 106 train-sets (212 coaches), Urbalis 400 communication-based train control (CBTC) signaling solution, Iconis control centre solution, platform screen doors, Wi-Fi connectivity, and 30 years of operations and maintenance services.

The first four REM coaches, wrapped in a white tarp for extra protection, were dispatched from Sri City through the Chennai Port in September. After a 23 day journey at sea, the coaches arrived at the Port of New York/New Jersey, travelled approximately 800 kms north through the interstate highway system, crossed into Quebec at Saint-Bernard-de-Lacolle, and arrived at the Brossard maintenance workshop on October 21.

REM’s Facebook Live video unveiling the coaches can be viewed here. Here are some specifications from their press release:

  • Length: 76.20 m (250’) at peak hours (4-coach)
  • Width: 2.94 m (9’8’’)
  • Height: 3.90 m (12’10’’) excluding the pantograph
  • Maximum weight: 232 tonnes
  • Theoretical capacity: 600 passengers per car
  • Maximum capacity: 780 passengers per car
  • Seats: 128
  • Average Speed: 51 km/h.
The trains have a spacious interior with side seating, durable seats, air conditioning (including heat), free WiFi and LCD screens. Per REM, the trains were specifically adapted for the city’s climate of hot, humid summers and very cold winters with the following characteristics:


  • Heated door thresholds and floors
  • Heated automatic couplers at the ends
  • Ice protection equipment
  • Heated windshields
  • Ice scrapers on the pantographs

A total of 4 REM cars have to-date been delivered to Montreal, and the next set of deliveries are expected to arrive in 2021. Alstom India recently revealed they had completed manufacturing 36 coaches.

In the coming days, the coaches will be coupled (two pairs or two cars), and prepared for testing on a 3.5 km segment from Brossard Stationt to Panama Station. Upon completion, the $6.3 billion REM will be one of the world’s largest automated transport networks, 67 km long with 26 stations, and connect downtown Montreal with South Shore, North Shore, West Island and Pierre Elliott Trudeau International Airport – view network route map.

The production and export of these metro coaches is a boost to the Government of India’s “Make in India” iniative which aims at turning the country into a global manufacturing destination. Prior to this, Alstom India had built and delivered 132 coaches to Sydney Metro and has now restarted manufacturing 138 coaches for its City and Southwest extensions.

Both Bombardier and Alstom production facilities in India have now also started focusing on export of Metro coaches to Australia and SE Asian nations after Indian cities.

Now you people are claiming Alstom is an Indian company. First you people claimed internet was invented by indians
The person who made this claim is just like pakistani science and technology minister. He should be ignored.

If the frenchies in Quebec are hurt because of this accident prone locomotive from India who will be responsible?

Quebeckers got the worst of all worlds deal paid out of their year for a French coach and ended up buying inferior Indian coaches. How sad, why not buy bombardier coaches like the rest of Canada. What a waste of my tax dollars!

Dude I think the planners and authorities in Canada are far more intelligent and experienced than a random troll like you. Stop too much hypothesising and overthinking. And you are not a Canadian.
