Montreal's 24 All-New Train Stations And Where They Will Be Located

Connecting the island like never before.
Montreal's 24 All-New Train Stations And Where They Will Be Located

Last week, the people of Montreal received some very good news, especially those that live outside of the city's urban core. In case you were undergoing some sort of self-imposed exile or the like, the good news was this:

Montreal will be getting a brand new 5 Billion dollar light rail line that will provide direct transport to the West Island, South Shore, North Shore, and Airport from the downtown area.

Fully equipped with WiFi, the trains will bring riders to right into the city in mere minutes, with a trip from the West Island to Downtown projected to take 6-12 minutes.

Set to be completed by 2020, the light rail line will consist of 24 new stations.

But as convenient as a short train ride into the city will be for folks who live in the city's periphery, the key factor will be where these stations actually exist. While the train may only take ten minutes, getting to the station itself may be another story entirely for some citizens.

While the exact addresses for each station have yet to be revealed, the names for said stations have been disclosed which provide a pretty good idea of where they'll be located, at least in a general sense.

Below you'll find a list of the station-locations for the new light rail system, along with a detailed map showcasing the entire network. A second map that shows where the light rail system will connect to existing metro stations follows, along with an infographic of information regarding the project.
