Saint-Martin station (Laval, Quebec)

Saint-Martin was a railway station on the Saint-Jérôme line at 800, boul. Saint-Martin Ouest (corner of boulevard Industriel) in Laval, Quebec, Canada. The station was one of the original four stations of the temporary Blainville line opened in 1997 to serve commuters during the construction on the Marius Dufresne Bridge. The station was closed in April 2007 with the opening of the Montreal Metro in Laval, due to its proximity to the De La Concorde station, 1.65 kilometres (1.03 mi) south. The station was located at Boulevard Saint Martin. This station had 190 parking spaces.[1]
