Laurier is a station on the Orange Line of the Montreal Metro rapid transit system, operated by the Société de transport de Montréal (STM). It is located in the Mile End neighbourhood of the borough of Le Plateau-Mont-Royal in Montreal, Quebec, Canada.[1] The station opened on October 14, 1966, as part of the original network of the metro.

Overview[edit]

The metro station, designed by Jean P. Pothier, is a normal side platform station, built in tunnel. It has a mezzanine and an entrance at either end, the southern one incorporating an open sided bus shelter, and the northern one including an automatic ticket barrier.

The walls are decorated in grey granite, with orange and red tiles at both ends of the platform.
