Langelier is a station on the Green Line of the Montreal Metro rapid transit system operated by the Société de transport de Montréal (STM). It is in the district of Mercier-Ouest in the borough of Mercier–Hochelaga-Maisonneuve in Montreal, Quebec, Canada. The station opened on June 6, 1976, as part of the extension of the Green Line to Honoré-Beaugrand.
Designed by Victor Prus & André G. Dionne, it is a normal side platform station built in tunnel. The central mezzanine, built within the tunnel vault, gives access to three entrances on three corners at the intersection of Sherbrooke Street East and Langelier Boulevard.
On the platforms, sculptural grilles by Charles Daudelin conceal ventilation intakes.
Origin of the name
The station is located on rue Sherbrooke Est at boulevard Langelier, named for Sir François Langelier (1838–1915), who served in a number of high offices in Quebec, including mayor of Quebec City (1882–1890) and Lieutenant-Governor (1911–1915).
