Mont-Royal 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 Plateau neighbourhood of the borough of Le Plateau-Mont-Royal in Montreal, Quebec, Canada. The station opened on October 14, 1966, as part of the original network of the metro.
The station's artwork consists of 32 narrow vertical aluminum seams at platform level, with extruded square and rectangular forms in high relief. These were created by noted Quebec artist Charles Daudelin. Also, the redevelopment of the place Gérald-Godin surrounding the station included the addition of a work of art, a poem by Gérald Godin bricked into the façade of a building, by the art collective Les Industries perdues.
Origin of the name
This station is named for Mount Royal Avenue (av. Mont-Royal), so called because it leads to the foot of Mount Royal. In the Town of Mount Royal, there is also an unrelated railway station by the same name.
