On January 1, 2009, the population of the entire island was 77,741 inhabitants, with 40,917 living on the Dutch side, and 36,824 on the French side.
Collectively, the two territories are known as "St-Martin / St Maarten". Sometimes SXM, the IATA identifier for Princess Juliana International Airport (the island's main airport), is used to refer to the island.
Saint-Martin was a railway station on the Saint-Jérôme Line (AMT). The station was one of the original four stations of the temporary Blainville line opened in 1997 to serve commuters during the construction on the Marius Dufresne Bridge. The station was closed in April 2007 with the opening of the Montreal Metro in Laval, due to its proximity to the De La Concorde station, 1.65km south. The station was located at Boulevard Saint Martin. This station had 190 parking spaces.
Saint-Martin Junction, a former Canadian Pacific Railway station, was located further north at the point where the CP lines, now QGR lines, to Ottawa and Quebec City separated. This station was used by Via Rail until January 1990.
