Sauvé 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 Ahuntsic district in the borough of Ahuntsic-Cartierville in Montreal, Quebec, Canada.[1] The station opened October 14, 1966, as part of the original network of the metro.

Overview[edit]

The metro station, designed by Adalbert Niklewicz, is a normal side platform station, built in tunnel. A single mezzanine connects entrances on either side of rue Sauvé.

Just south of the station on Berri Street, is the Canadian National railway line, which will carry the Agence métropolitaine de transport's (AMT) Mascouche Line, which is expected to begin operations in 2014. A Sauvé commuter rail station is planned to be constructed to connect these corridors, and will likely replace the nearby Via Rail Ahuntsic railway station.

Origin of the name[edit]

This station is named for Sauvé Street, named in 1912 for a landowner whose property the street crossed.
