The Orange (Line 2) line is one of the four lines of the [[Montreal Metro|metro}} in Montreal, Quebec, Canada. It formed part of the initial network, and was expanded between 1980 and 1986. It is presently being expanded, with three new stations being built on the island of Laval, Quebec, which will make it the second to actually leave Montreal island as part of its route. It is also the longest route in the Montreal Metro line.
