Namur 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 Côte-des-Neiges area of the borough of Côte-des-Neiges–Notre-Dame-de-Grâce in Montreal, Quebec, Canada.[1] This station has a total of 428 parking spaces in two nearby parking lots.[2]


The station is a normal side platform station with an entrance at the north end. It was planned in such a way as to allow an additional entrance to be built on the other side of the Décarie Autoroute, but this has not yet happened. A redevelopment plan for the area is under discussion.

The station was designed by the firm of Labelle, Marchand et Geoffroy. The station's mezzanine contains a giant suspended illuminated aluminum sculpture, entitled Système, by noted Quebec artist Pierre Granche.

Origin of the name[edit]

This station is named for rue Namur, the former name for a portion of rue Jean-Talon; the road had been renamed by the time the station was opened, so a nearby road (rue Arnoldi) was renamed Namur in 1980 to allow the station to keep its name. Namur is a city and province in Belgium.
