The Métro: 50 Years of History

On October 14, 1966, the Montréal métro welcomed its first riders in the network’s initial 26 stations along the Green, Orange and Yellow lines. Fifty years, 48 stations and several expansions later, our public transit system makes it possible for hundreds of thousands of people to get around the city each day. Learn more about the métro’s history, from 1966 to today. Archival photos, anecdotes, and more make for a fascinating history!
