The Réseau express métropolitain (REM) has begun building the future Édouard-Montpetit station. This new station will be located at the site of the Pavillon Marie-Victorin entrance building.

Before demolishing the entrance building, we will close this entrance to recover equipment such as:

  • Light fixtures
  • Loudspeakers
  • Butterfly doors 
  • Handrails
  • Wall finishes

The above equipment will be used for maintaining métro system facilities.

The station’s two other entrances will be open. For your safety, use the entrance located at the corner of Vincent D’Indy Avenue and Édouard-Montpetit Boulevard.

Did you know that...?

The new station will connect with the Montréal métro’s Blue line and will be one of the deepest stations in North America.

The changes are related to work on the Réseau express métropolitain (REM).

The shuttle service starts at the Roxboro-Pierrefonds station at 8 p.m. on Fridays and weekends.
