There will be a five-station extension to Montreal Metro‘s blue line, heading east towards Anjou.
Funding for the Metro’s blue line extension was highlighted in Quebec’s 2018 budget, with the project expected to cost $3.9 billion.

The federal government will help fund the extension, which would include adding five additional stops towards the city’s east end.
It is planning to match the province’s initial investment of $16 million — and then give an additional $32 million for the planning phase.

The province will add another $330 million.
The stops would add nearly six kilometres to the line; the hope is that it would mean less time for commuters to be stuck in traffic.
The extension is expected to be finished by 2026.
