Map of the proposed Pink Line route

The Pink Line (French: ligne rose) is a new subway line proposal for the Montreal Metro in Canada. First proposed by municipal councillor Sylvain Ouellet in September 2011,[1] the Pink Line in its current form was a "central campaign promise" of the mayoral campaign of Valérie Plante, leader of the political party Projet Montréal and now mayor of Montreal. The project is proposed to be finished by 2025, at a cost of an estimated C$5.9 billion.[2]

The proposed route of the line will traverse many Montreal neighbourhoods. It will start in Montreal North, and travel southeast through the city, with connections to the blue line extension, Mont-Royal metro station, and Place-des-Arts station. Given this routing, the section from Montreal North to Pie-IX is generally seen as the successor to the cancelled White Line originally proposed in the 1980s. A second phase of the project will travel southwest from Downtown Montreal, through the Notre-Dame-de-Grâce neighbourhood, Montreal West, and will end at Lachine.[2]
