Named for McGill University, it opened in 1966 and until 2002 was the busiest station in the network (it's now the second busiest of the 68 stations with over 10 million passengers a year). The maximum speed of the trains is 72km/hr. On the right platform can be seen the five stained glass murals by Nicholas Sollogoub, depicting Montreal scenes from 1830.
