Origin of name[edit]

Location of the station in the Town of Mount Royal

Mont-Royal takes its name from Town of Mount Royal (in French, Ville-Mont-Royal), where the station is located; the town in turn, takes its name from Mount Royal, the mountain that dominates the Island of Montreal.

In the city of Montreal, there is also an unrelated Metro station of the same name.

Location[edit]

The station is located at the eastern end of the traffic circle created by Graham and Laird boulevards, between and between Lombard Crescent and Dunkirk road. Connaught Park is inside this traffic circle

History[edit]

Mont-Royal station was until 1992 a stop for Via Rail passenger trains leaving or approaching Montreal's Central Station on this track.
