Montmorency 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 Laval-des-Rapides district of Laval, Quebec, Canada.[1] The station is part of an extension to the line to Laval and opened on April 28, 2007, becoming the northern terminus of the Orange Line. With the addition of the new metro stations, the Montreal Metro system now generates an extra 60,000 daily passengers. As of 2010, 1,050,000 daily passengers use the Montreal metro.[2]

Overview[edit]

Montmorency station during rush hour.

It is a normal side platform station. This station has the highest ceilings of any station in the network. The wall panels are decorated with tiling in diagonal stripes of retro shades of cyan, navy, straw yellow and brick red.

The station is equipped with the MétroVision information screens which displays news, commercials, and the waiting time until the arrival of the next train.

Origin of name[edit]

The station is located across the street from Cégep Montmorency. The CEGEP got its name from François de Montmorency-Laval (1623–1703), the first bishop of Quebec and New France from 1674 to 1688.
