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.[1]

Overview[edit]

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[edit]

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).
