OverviewEdit

Designed by Papineau, Gérin-Lajoie, Le Blanc, Edwards, it is a normal side platform station built in open cut. A vast mezzanine at the eastern end of the station provides access to three exits, two of which are surrounded by bus loops serving a large number of bus routes from the east end of the island. The stairs from the mezzanine to the platforms are surmounted by ceramic murals, one the reverse of the other, by Jean-Paul Mousseau.

Entrances/exits are at 7950 and 7955, rue Sherbrooke and 4755, rue Honoré-Beaugrand

The station is equipped with the MétroVision information screens which displays news, commercials, and the time till the next train.

Origin of the nameEdit

Honoré-Beaugrand was named after the adjoining rue Honoré-Beaugrand, which was in turn named after Honoré Beaugrand, who served as mayor of Montreal from 1885 to 1887. He founded the Montreal newspaper La Patrie in 1879. Soon after, he left the city to travel and write.
