Network upgrades : The STM begins renovation of Saint-Michel station


As of today, the Société de transport de Montréal (STM) is beginning renovation work at Saint Michel métro station. This project is part of the STM’s ongoing commitment to modernize its networks and ensure the safety of its infrastructure.

These renovations will take place over two years, and they will only affect one entrance building at a time, thereby keeping the station open and limiting the impact on customers. As a result, the station will remain accessible at all times.

About the work

The work includes:

  • Demolition and reconstruction of the concrete slab for the entrance building
  • Demolition and reconstruction of the concrete slab for the secondary entrance building
  • Demolition and reconstruction of staircases
  • Load-bearing and protective structures for escalators
  • Resurfacing of the exterior slab
  • Refurbishment of mechanical rooms
  • Concrete repair work in the natural ventilation shaft

About Saint-Michel station

Saint-Michel station was inaugurated on June 11, 1986, and welcomed its first passengers on June 16 of that year.

In 2023, it served 4 133 753 passengers, making it the 19th busiest station in the network.

Bus lines 41 Quartier Saint-Michel/Ahuntsic, 67 Saint-Michel, 93 Jean-Talon, 141 Jean‑Talon Est and 188 Couture transfer at this station.

About the network upgrades

Despite the challenging financial context, the STM continues to modernize and develop its networks to ensure that public transit can deliver its intended benefits. By 2030, 93% of the STM’s infrastructure will be more than 40 years into its useful life. That’s why we’re investing $21.1 billion over the next decade to modernize our bus and métro networks.

With these investments, we’ll be able to increase our capacity, improve métro accessibility, optimize the use of existing assets and boost the appeal of mass transit, all without having to build new facilities.
