Sauvé is a station on the Orange Line of Montreal's Metro. Its name originates from the street on which the station is found, rue Sauvé, which itself was named after a landowner who once had a property that the street crossed. Located just south of the station is the exo Sauvé commuter train station that serves the Mascouche line.
The station has two entrances, one on either side of rue Sauvé. The entrances themselves are quite small and directly lead to the escalators and stairs to descend to the mezzanine level.
The ticket booth and fare gates are placed in a relatively small area (as compared to most other stations). From there, it is quite direct to reach the mid-level above the platforms. An overhead walkway to cross to the opposite platforms is open on the sides, permitting visibility of the trains passing through underneath. Narrow stairwells on both sides of each access lead to the platforms and are covered with inch-sized brown and beige tiles.
The platform level is entirely in a tunnelled section of the station, and as a result, the ceiling takes the shape of a tunnel and is relatively low in height. Recessed seating is present in a few places, with the seats being coloured brown.
The station itself is quite plain but is still worth seeing due to how much infrastructure was placed in such a small space. It also makes for an interesting train-spotting location, due to the overhead walkway above the tracks.
