The Agence métropolitaine de transport (AMT) was the agency responsible for the planing, coordination, and integration of public transit in the city of Montreal and its metropolitan area. The AMT was formed in December 1995 and assumed responsibility of the commuter train network from the STCUM on January 1, 1996. It folded in 2017 when the new governance in transit in the Montréal metropolitan area came into force.

History

By the 1950s and 1960s, the Canadian National Railway (CN) and the Canadian Pacific Railway (CP) had established commuter rail service between Montreal and its surrounding municipalities. By the 1980s however, the two companies began scaling back their service. CN was operating trains between Montreal and Deux-Montagnes, while CP was operating trains between Montreal and Rigaud. In 1982, the Commission de transport de la communauté urbaine de Montréal agreed to integrate the two services with there bus and Metro network. The fares and schedules would be set by the CTCUM, to the benefit of commuter. Trains would be operated and maintained by CN and CP respectively. In 1985, the CTCUM became the Société de transport de la communauté urbaine de Montréal (STCUM).

The Agence métropolitaine de transport (AMT) was created in December 1995 to coordinate the planning and funding of regional transit in the Greater Montreal area. The AMT assumed responsibility of the commuter rail network from the STCUM on January 1, 1996. Since its creation, the AMT has inaugurated more commuter rail lines.

The Agence métropolitaine de transport (AMT) was succeeded by the Réseau de transport métropolitain (RTM) on June 1, 2017. The Government of Quebec passed Bill 76 on May 18, 2016—changing the organization and governance of public transit in the region. The bill established two bodies: the RTM and the Autorité régionale de transport métropolitain, which is tasked with planing and coordination.

Train lines

The AMT had six commuter train lines that covered the metropolitan area of Montréal:

Deux-Montagnes
Vaudreuil-Hudson
