Advisory Committee Established for the Project for Passenger Rail Services Linking the Downtown Core, Montreal-Trudeau Airport and the West Island

MONTREAL, QUEBEC--(Marketwire - July 8, 2008) - The Steering Committee for the project to develop passenger rail services linking the downtown core, Montreal-Pierre Elliott Trudeau International Airport and the West Island today announced the establishment of an Advisory Committee that will be tasked to promote consensus and acceptability of the project among the communities involved.

Made up of 13 members from a variety of milieux (see attached list), the Advisory Committee will enhance exchanges among Steering Committee members throughout the process by communicating to them the needs and perceptions of their communities with regard to the project.

Steering Committee members had asked several organizations: groups supporting airport development, organizations representing business communities, organizations representing users and organizations committed to the promotion of Montreal and the West Island to submit the names of candidates to join the Advisory Committee.

By the end of 2008, the Steering Committee will be ready to identify the optimum rail route and its preliminary operational characteristics.

The rail project Steering Committee is co-chaired by Aeroports de Montreal and the Agence metropolitaine de transport, and includes Transport Canada, Transports Quebec, the City of Montreal and the Communaute metropolitaine de Montreal.

The objective of the project is to improve public transit serving the downtown core, Montreal-Trudeau airport and the West Island area.

The list of the members of the Advisory Committee is available at the following address: http://media3.marketwire.com/docs/Advisory_members_eng.doc
