Honoré-Beaugrand station now universally accessible

Three new elevators are now available for Honoré-Beaugrand station users. This makes it the 14th métro station on the network to be equipped with elevators. 

Thanks to these new elevators, the Green line is now universally accessible to all customers. Green line users will also be able to use the elevators already installed at Lionel-Groulx station, which is a transfer point between the Orange and Green lines. The Orange line used to be the only one with universally accessible stations, but not anymore!

Just the beginning for the Green line

Elevators will be installed in several other Green line métro stations over the coming years: Viau, Préfontaine, Berri-UQAM (Green line), Place-des-Arts, McGill, Jolicœur and Angrignon. Several other projects are planned for the other three métro lines, with the goal being to make the entire métro system universally accessible by 2038.
