The Orange Line also known as Line 2, is a métro line operated by the Société de transport de Montréal (STM). The line runs through Montreal's central business district and is the system's second busiest line. The eastern terminus of the line, Montmorency, is located in the suburb of Laval.

History

The Orange Line opened with the Green Line on October 14, 1966, making Montreal the 8th city in North America, and the 26th in the world, to have an underground rapid transit system. Square-Victoria and Bonaventure stations were not completed on opening day, but were opened in the following months.[1] The Orange line had its northern terminus at Henri-Bourassa and southern terminus at Bonaventure.

In 1980, the line was extended westward to Place-Saint-Henri and then northwestward to Snowdon in 1981. This was followed by a series of further extensions in 1982, first to Côte-Sainte-Catherine, then Plamondon. The latter remained the western terminus of the Orange Line until January 1984, when it was extended to Du Collège. The line was extended to its current western terminus at Côte-Vertu in October 1986.[2]

In 1998, the Parti Québécois announced the proposal to extend Line 2 into Laval. Construction of the 5.2-kilometre, 3-stop extension began in 2002 and was complete in 2007. Inauguration of the extension took place on April 26, 2007, and two days later, it was open to the public. According to the AMT, which oversaw the project, the total cost of bringing the Metro into Laval was was C$745 million.[3]
