Montreal's metro system may not always be the most reliable, but at least it's one of the safest in the world.

Still, that doesn't mean crime and violence never happens.

Some stations are far more prone to crime than others.

Now that doesn't mean you should be afraid to take the metro, but perhaps you might start being a little more careful the next time you find yourself in one of the most dangerous metro stations in Montreal.

You can consult Thomas Gerbet's interactive map or check out the top 15 below:

15. Snowdon

  • 9 crimes for every million passengers

14. Atwater

  • 9.3 crimes for every million passengers

13. Lucien-L'Allier

  • 9.5 crimes for every million passengers

12. Langelier

  • 9.7 crimes for every million passengers

11. Saint-Laurent

  • 10.2 crimes for every million passengers

10. Honoré-Beaugrand

  • 11 crimes for every million passengers

9. Viau

11.7 crimes for every million passengers

8. Place-Saint-Henri

  • 11.7 crimes for every million passengers

7. Papineau

  • 11.7 crimes for every million passengers

6. Charlevoix

  • 12 crimes for every million passengers

5. Georges-Vanier

  • 12 crimes for every million passengers

4. Place-des-Arts

  • 12.9 crimes for every million passengers

3. Préfontaine

  • 17.9 crimes for every million passengers

2. Beaudry

  • 25.9 crimes for every million passengers

1. Berri-Uqam

  • 32.3 crimes for every million passengers

Berri-UQAM might be the most dangerous one, but it also sees the most amount of passengers every year. And seriously don't panic too much, because considering the most dangerous metro station in the city only had 32 crimes for every million people that passed through, I'm pretty sure you'll be safe.

Although one time, some crazy guy went after a bunch of people in Berri with an ax, but other than that, totally safe.

The Quebec government is going to pump a ton of cash into Montreal-area public transit authorities in an effort to, hopefully, make your transit commute better. Chantal Rouleau, Minister of Transport and Minister responsible for the Metropolitan Area and the Montreal Region, announced a $24.8 million financial contribution for mitigation measures in public and active transportation.

"Because public transit is a sustainable solution to road congestion, it is essential for us to maintain the mitigation measures that have been implemented and that have proven their worth," Rouleau said in a press release.

Those of you who pay your metro fare in cash — yes, all three of you — may have to rethink the way you pay in the new year. The Société de transport de Montréal (STM) announced that station agents at its booths will no longer accept cash beginning on February 7, 2022.

But those who prefer to use cash shouldn't fret. The STM isn't doing away with cash payments altogether. Automatic ticket machines, the STM's network of 350 ticket retailers, and buses will continue to accept the payment.

Next time you take the bus, take a closer look because you might just be one of the lucky Montrealers who get to experience the STM's all-new electric buses. This month, the STM is testing its new fleet and allowing customers to board.

"The several weeks-long testing periods will be the first time that the public has ever boarded the vehicles, representing one of the final phases of performance validation before the official commissioning," the STM says in a press release.

Journey to the centre of the Earth in a new video of the Montreal REM's future stop at Édouard-Montpetit station. Late last year, members of the media got to tour the site, which, at 72 metres below the surface, will become Canada's deepest subway station when it opens in 2023.

Narcity and MTL Blog's own Alex Melki was among the visitors. Narcity's video of the tour shows the scale of the project to link the Mount Royal Tunnel to the STM's blue metro line station.
