Overview

Designed by Papineau, Gérin-Lajoie, Le Blanc, Edwards, it is a normal side platform station built partly in tunnel, with a very tall, vaulted volume over the eastern part of the platform. This contains the transept and a tall escalator shaft rising unsupported to the ticket hall above. The latter gives access to three entrances. The station serves a metropolitan bus terminus and a park and ride lot.

Origin of the name

The station is named for rue Radisson. Pierre-Esprit Radisson (c. 16401710) was a French explorer who was instrumental in the development of the Hudson's Bay Company.
