Police Station


Police officers on patrol in the subway carry out their duties throughout the entire interior network of the Société de transport de Montréal (STM). They cover areas from the start of the subway (or inside entrance) up to the platforms, including walkways and businesses adjoining certain stations.

To understand the scope of SPVM police officer deployment in the subway, it is necessary to consider the extent of Montréal's public transit network.

Extent of the network

  • 64 subway stations in the region of the City ofMontréal's police department (SPVM)
  • 4 different lines
  • connected to 171 day bus routes and 20 night routes


  • 700,000 trips by subway, on average, each day of the week
  • 364 million trips each year
  • Over30 kmof subway network used by more than 500,000 people each day
  • 81% of people taking the subway and 95% of people taking the bus are from Montréal

Use of the network

Public transit is a way for the people of Montréal and its visitors to get around, while reducing their dependency on cars.

It is also an excellent means of transportation to get to major events in Montréal (fireworks, Grand Prix, festivals, etc.).

In addition, the network is bordered by a number of park-and-ride lots.
