Line 4 Yellow (Montreal Metro)


Line 4 Yellow (Montreal Metro)

The Yellow (Line 4) line is one of the metro's four routes operating in Montreal, Quebec, Canada. It was popular when it opened for service because it connected Montreal's city centre with the Expo 67 exhibition and La Ronde on Île-Sainte-Hélène. Line 4 has three stations, and travels under the St. Lawrence River between the island of Montreal and Longueuil. Line 4 was part of the initial network of the metro, and numbered in conjunction with Line 3, a route that was later cancelled. It is also the first metro line to leave the island. All three stations on the line have been renamed since their opening.
