Radisson 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 Saint-Jean-de-Dieu in the borough of Mercier–Hochelaga-Maisonneuve in Montreal, Quebec, Canada.[1] The station opened on June 6, 1976, as part of the extension of the Green Line to Honoré-Beaugrand.

Overview[edit]

Designed by Papineau, Gérin-Lajoie, Le Blanc, Edwards, it is a normal side platform station built partly in tunnel, with a very tall, vaulted volume over the eastern part of the platform. This contains the transept and a tall escalator shaft rising unsupported to the ticket hall above. The latter gives access to three entrances. The station serves a metropolitan bus terminus and a park and ride lot.

Origin of the name[edit]

The station is named for rue Radisson. Pierre-Esprit Radisson (c. 1640–1710) was a French explorer who was instrumental in the development of the Hudson's Bay Company.
