OverviewEdit

The station was named after Jean Drapeau, mayor of Montreal from 1954 to 1957 and 1960 to 1986, who is often given credit for the construction of the Metro, and for securing both Expo 67 and the 1976 Summer Olympics.

The station was originally named Île Sainte-Hélène, after the island on which it is located, until it was renamed in Drapeau's honour in May 2001.[4]

It is a normal side platform station.
