Montréal-Ouest station is a commuter rail station in Montreal West, Quebec. It serves the Réseau de transport métropolitain (RTM) Vaudreuil-Hudson, Saint-Jérôme, and Candiac lines. Montréal-Ouest station is located in Fare Zone 1, and this station has 20 parking spaces,[1] it is the station where these three lines come together as one towards Lucien-L'Allier station.

Origin of name[edit]

Montréal-Ouest takes its name from the Town of Montreal West, where half of the station is located. The other half is located in the city of Montreal (Côte-des-Neiges/Notre-Dame-de-Grace borough)

History[edit]

The station in October 1946.

The station opened on 14 April 1889, when the Canadian Pacific Railway's Windsor Station and its approach tracks came into service, its original name was Montreal Junction, the second place to bear this name, because it was (as it still is today) the place where numerous CPR passenger lines came together near the Montreal terminal. The present Montreal-West station was built in 1905.

Until about the 1970s there were 4 tracks at the station. Track 1 (the southernmost track, closest to the station) was removed. In the 1980s the crossover from North Junction into the station (track 4) was removed, but was restored in 1999 when the Blainville train line (now Saint-Jérôme line) started downtown service. It wasn't until 2003, however, that Saint-Jérôme trains stopped at Montréal-Ouest.
