Édouard-Montpetit is a station on the Blue Line of the Montreal Metro rapid transit system, operated by the Société de transport de Montréal (STM). It is located in the Côte-des-Neiges area of borough of Côte-des-Neiges–Notre-Dame-de-Grâce of Montreal, Quebec, Canada.
It is a normal side platform station.
Origin of name
Édouard-Montpetit metro station takes its name from the street under which it lies: Édouard-Montpetit Boulevard. The boulevard in turn takes its name from Édouard Montpetit (1881–1954), a Quebec lawyer, economist and academic closely linked with the nearby Université de Montréal.
Édouard-Montpetit metro station was designed to be able to provide a connection with the Agence métropolitaine de transport's Montreal—Deux Montagnes commuter rail line. If such a connection were implemented, high-speed elevators would run from the metro station to the train station in the Mount Royal Tunnel, 75 metres (246 feet) below. The ventilation shaft for the Mount Royal Tunnel is next to the Édouard-Montpetit Station.
Before Line 5 Blue was built, there was to be a Line 3 Red station of the same name as the Line 5 station which would have made Édouard-Montpetit an interchange station, however Line 3 never made it past its planning stage.
