View of St-Michel from the platform.

It is a side platform station with two entrances on either side of boul. St-Michel connecting to a common ticket hall. Unlike all other stations on the Blue Line, the station is only as long as the six-car trains used on the line; all of the other stations were built to accommodate a nine-car train. However, the station cavern is long enough for a nine-car train; the extra space could be opened and finished to accommodate full-length trains when the STM extends the line east into the boroughs of St. Leonard and Anjou and to commit to the line's original design.[5]

The platforms feature four abstract paintings under glass bricks, by Normand Moffat, Charles Lemay, Lauréat Marois, and Marcelin Cardinal.

Origin of name


Saint-Michel station takes its name from the street under which it lies, boulevard Saint-Michel, named since about the late eighteenth century for the former Ville Saint-Michel within which it is located. Saint-Michel is the French Catholic title for the archangel Michael.
