Côte-Sainte-Catherine station is a Montreal Metro station in the borough of Côte-des-Neiges–Notre-Dame-de-Grâce in Montreal, Quebec, Canada.[1] It is operated by the Société de transport de Montréal (STM) and serves the Orange Line. It is located in the Côte-des-Neiges neighbourhood. The station opened on January 4, 1982, and briefly served as the western terminus of the Orange Line, replacing Snowdon station station until Plamondon station in June of that year.

Overview[edit]

The station is a normal side platform station, built in tunnel with a central mezzanine built in trench, and one entrance.

The station was designed by Gilbert Sauvé and contains murals and reliefs by the architect.

In June 2010 the station was closed for renovations and reopened in August.

Origin of the name[edit]

This station is named for the chemin de la Côte-Sainte-Catherine, the main street of the former village of Outremont, which had been called Côte Sainte-Catherine since the 17th century. The station, road, and côte were all named for Saint Catherine of Alexandria.
