Metro extension

Expand the metro network? We wish for that as much as you do! The metro is central to urban life, and we are trying day in and day out to have it extended.

A team effort

Under the rigorous and responsible leadership of the AMT and Transports Québec, a project office is currently conducting the necessary studies to make the extension a reality. Many other partners are involved: the municipalities of Montréal, Laval and Longueuil, the Société de transport de Montréal (STM), the Société de transport de Laval (STL), the Réseau de transport de Longueuil (RTL) and the Association québécoise du transport intermunicipal et municipal (AQTIM).

Priority: The blue line

The extension of the blue line will be the priority and the first step in the network’s expansion. Our studies show that, once completed, it will have a daily ridership of more than 80,000 users, in addition to breathing new life into the sector and driving economic and social development across the affected area.

  • Five new stations will be added east of Saint-Michel: Pie-IX, Viau, Lacordaire, Langelier and Anjou.
  • Over 5.5 km of underground infrastructures will be built in the Jean-Talon Street corridor.

The extension of the blue line will:

  • substantially improve access to the network in Montréal’s northeast sector
  • facilitate transfers to and from the Pie-IX Boulevard bus rapid transit service, and
  • serve existing hubs of economic activity in the Anjou borough.

Complementary studies

In parallel with the above efforts, the project office has also been mandated to proceed with the complementary studies for the extension of the yellow and orange lines. The yellow line will be extended to respond to the major transportation challenges facing South Shore users. The line’s extension will also promote the sector’s demographic and economic development. The development strategy for this line is currently being studied.

A project to extend the orange line is also being studied. This extension will improve service to the Saint-Laurent and Ahuntsic-Cartierville boroughs, the northwestern part of the island of Montréal, the Saint-Laurent industrial and technological park, as well as western Laval.
