The Metro and bus system.
You can of course pay the big price each time, but if you are planning serious commuting, then I suggest as a minimum the 6 tickets for $8.25, the daily tourist pass for $5, the 3 days for $12, the weekly for $12.50, the monthly for $47.
I found the Montreal metro nice and clean and well labelled, easy to get around on
The sign was sort of reminiscent of the Metro in Paris
Montreal has a nice metro system that gets you close to all the major tourist sites. fares are $2.50 Cdn or free with the Museum card.
30 km of undergrown tunnels in Montreal. In winter people dont wear coat sometimes. That how it is convenient.
The easiest way around Montreal is to head down and use the Metro. If your planning to stay in the city pickup a day pass and tour around and around as long as you like. Good value too.
between the Metro and your own two feet, you can get anywhere in Montreal. Very clean and I thought efficient.
Montreal sits on an island 40 km long and 15 km wide. The best way to travel through the city is the metro
Some subway/metro systems are very utilitarian or even dingy. Not so in Montreal. You'll find all sorts of wonderful art displayed at many of the stations.
Poeple are always on the move and mind their own business in the metro stations. It is not a place to meet new friends!!!
One day tourist pass = 7$, for 3 days : 14$, 6 tickets = 8.25$ -
They can be used in metro and bus (see the website of STCUM).
After a day of walking in the city, you will maybe be happy to take the comfortable Metro. It's quick (no traffic jam …) and safe.
Preferably any way except by car (especially during rush hour)
the metro is efficient
Picture is of Ben and me (again). Sorry - there isn't a whole lot of pics of Montreal itself...
The Montreal Metro is excellent. Very clean and convenient. There are maps available everywhere for the Metro system.
