Peel is a station on the Green Line of the Metro in Montreal, Québec, Canada. It is in downtown Montreal in the borough of Ville-Marie. It was inaugurated on October 14, 1966, as part of the original network of the metro.

Designed by Papineau, Gérin-Lajoie, and Leblanc, it is a normal side-platform station, built in open-cut under boul. De Maisonneuve. Its mezzanine floats within the open-cut volume, supported by pillars and beams, and contains ticket barriers at either end with the fare-paid zone in the centre. There are two accesses at the west end of the station, one with shops and services, and three at the east end, including underground city access to the Cours Mont-Royal and points east. All of the street accesses are integrated into other buildings.

A circular theme is present throughout the station's decor, reflecting the main artwork, a series of 54 circles (of which 37 remain) by Jean-Paul Mousseau, one of the few artworks to be integrated into the architecture of the original network rather than commissioned later. A sculpture by Maurice Lemieux entitled Enterspace stands outside the Peel Nord entrance.

Origin of the nameEdit

The station is named for Peel Street. Sir Robert Peel, British Prime Minister from 1834 to 1835 and again from 1841 to 1846, is best known for creating London's police department while Home Secretary, thus giving them their nickname of "Bobbies."
