Jarry 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 borough of Villeray–Saint-Michel–Parc-Extension in Montreal, Quebec, Canada. The station opened on October 14, 1966, as part of the original network of the Metro.
The station, designed by Lemoyne, Bland, Edwards, & Shine, is a normal side platform station, built in tunnel. The mezzanine near the north end is connected to an entrance integrated into the ground floor of an apartment building. The station is known for the diamond-shaped caissons in the ceiling of the transept.
Origin of the name
This station is named for rue Jarry, which in turn commemorates Bernard Bleignier also known as Jarry, who received a concession in 1700 that later became the village of Saint-Laurent. The street was built on land belonging to Stanislas Jarry (patriarch), a descendant of Bernard Jarry, who was mayor of the village in 1907.
