The Stations


Assomption is a station on the Green Line of Montreal's Metro. The station was originally called l'Assomption due to the boulevard de l'Assomption on which the station is found, however, it was later renamed Assomption.

The station is accessed through the sole entrance building on boul de l'Assomption. Once inside, passengers loop around the upper level to reach the top of the stairs to descend to the mid-level. From there, a short corridor leads to the next set of escalators which reach the mezzanine. This area has a tall sweeping and vaulting ceiling, accentuating the depth and size of the underground station. 

Passing through the fare gates, there is a small convenience store located on one side. The access to the platforms is from either side but it was constructed in an asymmetrical and diagonal way, helping to differentiate the two platforms from one another. At the platform level, red-tiled squares make up the side walls.


The most unique feature is the asymmetrical access and design linking the mezzanine to the platform level. One stair is located at the end of the mezzanine while the other is offset back and passes underneath the edge of the mezzanine.


There are several colourful murals found in the entrance and the corridors of the station that were created by Guy Montpetit.
