Plamondon is a station on Orange Line of the Montreal Metro rapid transit system, operated by the Société de transport de Montréal (STM). It is located in the Côte-des-Neiges section of the borough of Côte-des-Neiges–Notre-Dame-de-Grâce in Montreal, Quebec, Canada.[1]

The station opened on June 29, 1982; it served as the western terminus of the Orange Line, replacing Côte-Sainte-Catherine station, until the extension to Du Collège was completed in 1984.

Overview[edit]

The station is a normal side platform station with an entrance at either end. The northern entrance is integrated into a social housing project at the corner of Avenue Plamondon and Victoria Avenue. The southern entrance is located on the corner of Van Horne avenue and Victoria avenue near a commercial center and an elementary school. The station decor is divided in two to reflect the two entrances, with blue panels to the north and reddish-pink to the south.

The station was designed by Patrice Gauthier.

Origin of the name[edit]

This station is named for av. Plamondon, so named by Montreal city council in 1911 without a stated reason. It may be named for Quebec painter Antoine Plamondon (1804–1895) or singer Rodolphe Plamondon[2] (1875–1940).
