Overview

Honoré-Beaugrand station.

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.

Origin of the name

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.
