The Stations

Mont-Royal

Overview

Mont-Royal is a station on the Orange line of the Montreal Metro.

It was named in honour of Mount Royal Avenue, whose french name is "Mont-Royal'.

The station has a unique entrance, on 470 Mount Royal East. The mezzanine is nice, and can be similar to the ones at Beaudry and Berri-UQAM where you get the doors in the middle with windows all around and over it. Once inside, you find the escalators and stairs who are quite dark compared to other stations. Then the only ticket booth is placed just before the stairs that lead to the side platforms, which are all in beautiful brown bricks, from the walls to the benches to the floors.

Places of interest include famous Montreal theatre "Théâtre du Rideau-Vert, as well as commercial street Mount Royal Avenue.


Unique Features

All of the station was built in a tunnel except for the ticket booth.
