Red Line (Montreal Metro)
The Red Line (French: Ligne rouge), also known as Line 3 (French: Ligne 3), was a proposed line of the Montreal Metro that never made it past its planning stage. The line was supposed to have 15 stations and end at Cartierville (western) of Bordeaux-Cartierville, using CN tracks and Mount Royal Tunnel under Mount Royal. The line was cancelled because:
- Trains would have to use steel wheels instead of rubber tires like the rest of the Metro cars because part (or most) of the line was to go outside.
- Expo 67 made the Yellow Line more important.
The line was still planned for construction as a "regional metro" line in the early 1980s, reduced to a total of 9 stations.
