Saint-Michel is a station at the eastern terminus Blue Line of the Montreal Metro rapid transit system, operated by the Société de transport de Montréal (STM). It is located in Montreal, Quebec, Canada.[1]

Overview[edit]

View of St-Michel from the platform.

It is a side platform station with two entrances on either side of boul. St-Michel connecting to a common ticket hall. Unlike all other stations on the Blue Line, the station is only as long as the six-car trains used on the line; all the others were built to accommodate a nine-car train. However, the station cavern is long enough for a nine-car train; the extra space could be opened and finished to accommodate full-length trains if and when the STM decides to extend the line east into the boroughs of St. Leonard and Anjou, committing to the line's original design.

The platforms feature four abstract paintings under glass bricks, by Normand Moffat, Charles Lemay, Lauréat Marois, and Marcelin Cardinal.

Origin of name[edit]

Saint-Michel metro station takes its name from the street under which it lies, boulevard Saint-Michel, named by at least the late eighteenth century for the former Ville Saint-Michel within which it is located. Saint-Michel is the French Catholic title for the archangel Michael.
