The STM Métro Arts program
For a number of years now, the cultural community and the STM have joined together to improve the public transit experience and establish a closer connection with the public. Whether through cultural events, artists or creative venues, the objective remains the same: open the métro network to new creators and high-quality performances and make them accessible to the greatest number of people while encouraging them to use public transit.

Making the public transit experience more enjoyable for customers and transforming the métro into a unique and original showcase for cultural events are part of the STM’s commitment through the Métro Arts program.
