Outremont is a station on the Blue Line of the Montreal Metro rapid transit system, operated by the Société de transport de Montréal (STM) . It is located in the Outremont borough of Montreal, Quebec, Canada.
It is a normal side platform station with a mined trainroom and open-cut volume at one end, containing the ticket hall and topped by the one large entrance and a glazed skylight. Classic materials and a mural of glazed ceramics by Gilbert Poissant evoke the architecture of the surrounding neighbourhood, as does a City of Outremont lamp post at the foot of the stairs to one platform.
Origin of name
The station takes its name from the borough (formerly city) of Outremont, in which it is located. Originally named Côte-Sainte-Catherine, the town took its name in 1875 from a mansion, still extant, built in 1833 by Louis-Tancrède Bouthillier and named "Outre-Mont" ("beyond the mountain" from the main settlement of Montreal).
