The consortium chosen for the infrastructure engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) is
Groupe NouvLR. Its members are SNC Lavalin Grands Projets, Dragados Canada, Groupe Aecon Québec, Pomerleau and EBC. Other participants are SNC Lavalin and Aecom Consultants.

The contract for the provision of rolling stock and systems and operation and maintenance (RSSOM) has gone to Groupe des Partenaires pour la Mobilité des Montréalais (PMM). Its members are  Alstom Transport Canada and SNC-Lavalin O&M.

The two selected consortia will harmonise their respective proposals in the next few months to finalize the details of the schedule and begin work in the spring.
