The Transportation Research at McGill (TRAM) in collboration with the SPHERE Lab at University of Montreal are conducting a major research measuring the social and well-being impacts of the construction of the Réseau express métropolitain (REM) project in Monteal. This research is funded by The Canadian Institutes of Health Research (CIHR) Project number CPG-170602 and CPG-170602 X- 253156 and The Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council (NSERC) Project number CHRPJ 549576-20.
This page is dedicated to posting latest research produced from this project by students including policy briefs, reports, and peer reviewed publications.
