Few vehicles for review-writing capture the spectrum of human thought quite like Google reviews. Not just for restaurants or services, these reviews exist for plenty of labelled structures on the map, including (but not limited to) Montreal metro stations.

Since the pandemic began, the STM has faced significant decreases in ridership as events were moved online and unnecessary travel was discouraged. In 2019, the most visited station was understandably Berri-UQAM, a downtown hub and key transfer station. That year, Berri-UQAM saw over 12.6 million visitors, according to the STM's annual report.
