Édouard-Montpetit station is a Montreal Metro station in of Montreal, Quebec, Canada. It is operated by the Société de transport de Montréal (STM) and serves the Blue Line. It is located in the Côte-des-Neiges area of the borough of Côte-des-Neiges–Notre-Dame-de-Grâce.
It is a normal side platform station.
Origin of name
During planning, the station was to be named Vincent-d'Indy, but the name was ultimately changed to Édouard-Montpetit, from the street under which it lies: Édouard-Montpetit Boulevard. The boulevard in turn takes its name from Édouard Montpetit (1881–1954), a Quebec lawyer, economist and academic closely linked with the nearby Université de Montréal.
Édouard-Montpetit station was designed to be able to provide a connection with the Réseau de transport métropolitain's Montreal—Deux Montagnes commuter rail line, which during the planning of the original network was to have been converted into Line 3 of the Metro. However, this never made it past the planning stage. If such a connection were implemented, high-speed elevators would run from the Metro station to the train station in the Mount Royal Tunnel, 75 metres (246 feet) below. This project was resurrected again in 2016 with the Réseau express métropolitain project.
The Edouard-Montpetit station will be connected to the Réseau express métropolitain via an interchange station in the Mount Royal Tunnel. High-speed elevators will connect the two systems through 75 metres (246 feet), thus surpassing Washington's Forest Glen station as the deepest in North America.
