On February 28, 2018, MR-63 unveiled the plans for Station F-MR, a temporary public square to be set up from June to September 2018 at the Place des Bassins, part of the Lachine Canal National Historic Site, in collaboration with Parks Canada. This square, in the heart of the Quartier de l’Innovation, became a summer destination in the city for Montrealers and visitors alike. In total, four MR-63 metro cars were integrated into this space, which consisted of an art gallery, a design shop, a food counter, a stage and a relaxation area.
Station F-MR offered a multidisciplinary cultural program with the city’s talents, and activities such as art exhibitions, film screenings, creative workshops, concerts, shows and local produce markets. The detailed program was announced following a major call for projects from Montreal’s talents in art, design and gastronomy. Part of the program was left open for citizens who wanted to develop activities.
