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.


The vast majority of today's metro was built in Montreal in the 1960s, especially in connection with the World Expo 1967. The most important spiritual father of the Montreal metro in its current form was Lucien l’Allier, who managed its construction from 1954-1964. His enthusiasm for the metro and its construction led him to the position of director of the then transport company CTM (now STM). L’Allier ran the transport company from 1964-1974.
