Jolicoeur is a station on the Green Line of the Montreal Metro rapid transit system operated by the Société de transport de Montréal (STM). It is located in the Côte-Saint-Paul district in the borough of Le Sud-Ouest in Montreal, Quebec, Canada.[1] The station opened on September 3, 1978, as part of the extension of the Green Line westward to Angrignon.

Art and architecture[edit]

Designed by Claude Boucher, it is a side platform station, built in a shallow open cut, with the ticket hall integrated into a large glass-walled entrance pavilion. The floor of the platform level is decorated with a series of 42 circular artworks by the architect.

Origin of the name[edit]

This station is named for rue Jolicoeur. Father Jean-Moïse Jolicoeur founded the parish of Notre-Dame-du-Perpétuel-Secours in 1906; the street was renamed in his honour in 1914.

Connecting bus routes[edit]

There are no bus bays here and Société de transport de Montréal and CIT Roussillon buses serve the station from curbside bus stops on Drake Street and Jolicoeur Street.
