Description De La Savane station is a Montreal Metro station in the borough of Côte-des-Neiges–Notre-Dame-de-Grâce in Montreal, Quebec, Canada. It is operated by the Société de transport de Montréal (STM) and serves the Orange Line. It is located in the Côte-des-Neiges area and opened on January 9, 1984.OverviewThe station is a normal side platform station with an entrance at the north end. It was planned in such a way as to allow an additional entrance to be built on the other side of the Décarie Autoroute, but this has not yet happened. As it is the station with the least number of passengers, a redevelopment plan for the area is under discussion.The station was designed by Guy de Varennes and Almas Mathieu. Its artworks include mural treatments in the entrance, mezzanine, and platforms by the architects, as well as a large metal sculpture by Maurice Lemieux, entitled Calcite, affixed to the wall of the mezzanine and illuminated by a light shaft.Origin of the nameThis station is named for the rue de la Savane, which has been known by that name since 1778 and was no doubt named for a nearby prairie or swamp (named savane in Quebec French).
