Today, Société de transport de Montréal (STM) is opening up a new architectural zone for exhibitions on the subject of public transportation. Located halfway down the Saint-Denis corridor at Berri-UQAM station, the space consists of nine backlit windows and three television screens. Both a place to rest and to get together, Escale offers a one-of-a-kind venue in the métro that encourages transit users to take a break along their way. Indeed, temporary exhibits on transit-related topics will bring this showcase to life.
As it launches this new initiative in the spirit of improving the customer experience, STM dedicates this first exhibition to the 50th anniversary of the Montréal métro. Never-seen-before pictures of the métro’s inauguration in 1966 will be displayed for the occasion. Allowing you to travel back in time, this public showing includes items contributed by the City of Montréal’s Archives.
