Work completed at Jean-Drapeau station
In April 2018, we started work at Jean-Drapeau station to make it universally accessible. The work included installing two elevators and two new wing gates and relocating two automatic fare vending machines to improve the fluidity of passenger movements. The work is now completed and the elevators have been in service since November 23, 2019.
We prioritized Jean-Drapeau station because the feasibility studies were already completed, and the site's technical complexity was considered low, reducing the cost of the work.
This is the first accessible station on the Yellow line. The station is heavily used by families with children in strollers, who will also benefit from the elevators.

The Accessibility program is made possible thanks to additional funding announced by the federal and provincial governments for the purpose of speeding up universal accessibility work and making 41 métro stations accessible by 2025.
