Faced with the prospect of a longer, more difficult commute, one frustrated Deux-Montagne train user is taking matters into her own hands.
Karolyne Viau took to social media over the weekend, appealing directly to Quebec Premier François Legault to postpone construction on the new light rail train project known as the REM (Réseau express métropolitain).
Viau added her voice to the chorus of riders on the on the Deux-Montagnes exo commuter train who want REM work delayed because of impending train disruptions.
Construction is set to begin Jan. 6, 2020 with part of the Deux-Montagnes line closing.
Commuters will have to add buses and metros to their daily commute. The additional transfers could add up to 45 minutes in transit times.
