Description:
Joliette is a station on the Green Line of the Montreal Metro rapid transit system operated by the Société de transport de Montréal (STM). Is located in the district of Hochelaga-Maisonneuve in the borough of Mercier–Hochelaga-Maisonneuve in Montreal, Quebec, Canada . The station opened on June 6, 1976, as part of the extension of the Green Line to Honoré-Beaugrand.

Overview

Designed by architect Marcel Raby, it is a normal side platform station built in tunnel. The walls of the platform have a unique yellow brick façade. It has no transept, with closed staircases leading to the mezzanine above; this gives access to two exits, one on either side of rue Hochelaga. The mezzanine contains a large illuminated mural sculpture by the architect, entitled Thème des mouvements du soleil ("theme of the sun's motion").

Origin of the name

This station is named for rue Joliette. Barthélémy Joliette (1789–1850) served in the House of Assembly and Legislative Council of Lower Canada; he also founded the village of L'Industrie (later Joliette, Quebec).
