Metro in Montreal
October 25, 2021
The Montreal Metro currently has four lines that use both color and numbering. Of interest is the absence of unrealized line 3 (red color). Realized lines bear the following numbers and colors: Line 1 (green line) from Angrignon to Honoré-Beaugrand. Its length reaches 22.1 km, has a total of 27 stations and was built in 1966-1978. Line 2 (orange line) from Côte-Vertu to Montmorency. Its length reaches 30 km, has a total of 31 stations and was built in 1966-2007. Line 4 (yellow line) from Berri-UQAM to Longueuil – Université-de-Sherbrooke. Currently, it is the shortest line, whose length is only 4.25 km. It has a total of 3 stations and was built in its entire length in 1967. Only one of its stations is located in Montreal, the other two (Jean-Drapeau and Longueuil-Université-de-Sherbrooke) are located in the neighboring town of Longueuil. Line 5 (blue line) from Snowdon to Saint-Michel. Its length reaches 9.7 km, so it is the second shortest line. It has a total of 12 stations and was built between 1986 and 1988. With a few exceptions, all stations are located on the island on which the city of Montreal stands.
