  • Metro

    Montreal Transportation

    The metro here is great. Easy to use, one price (Canadian $2.75) for one travel. Buy an Opus Card for 20 passes for Canadian $20.00 but Opus cards cannot be shared (we were told). The metro is conveniently located at many of the main tourist sights like the Biodome. And if it isn't, taking a taxi is actually not too expensive either.

  • Via Rail (train)

    Quebec Transportation

    We thought it would be a breeze walking from the station to our lovely lodgings: a quick, close 8-10 minute walk, or so it appeared by Google map. BUT our little route was riddled with BIG hills, & worse, the sidewalks were cobblestone, which ended up wrecking one of our rolling (carry-on size) suitcases. It didn't help that it was raining & very...

  • Buses

    Montreal Transportation

    Montreal has a pretty good public transport system, a combination of bus and Metro. You can buy tickets or a book of tickets but they also have several types of passes, including a weekend pass and a three day pass. The really nice thing about the passes is that they include the bus from the airport, the "747" bus that takes a direct route from the...

  • Funiculaire du Vieux Quebec

    Quebec Transportation

    When you just don't have enough energy to make it back up to the upper city from the lower, at the end of Petit Champlain is this Funicular to get you up there for $1.5 Canadian. Definitely give it a try for at least one trip for the great views

  • Airplane

    Montreal Transportation

    Flying to Montreal international brings you to the Pierre Elliott Trudeau Airport (YUL); better known as "Dorval" for the seasoned travellers. In my opinion the Terminal has been greatly improved in the first decade of the 21th century. There is far more floorspace and the interior looks and feels modern. At my last visit roadworks outside the...

  • Orleans Express (bus)

    Quebec Transportation

    I had booked round trip tickets toronto - Riviere du loup. My bus to return home was delayed which happens sometimes. The wheater conditions were fine no mechanical issues on the way but still missed a connection in montreal. I had to wait until the next morning before I could leave again and therefore missing work. Olean express never offered a...

  • Car/Auto

    Montreal Transportation

    If you have to remember two things about Montreal, remember these two: 1)For the Americans: First, quebec time works like military time. Aka 17h00 is 5PM, 13h00 is 1PM. So be aware when you things like "No parking between 9 and 2"!!! It means 9 AM and 2 AM, not 9-2 PM!!! 2)Parking quality and prices vary considerably, even within a 3 block...

  • Driving to/around Quebec CIty

    Quebec Transportation

    From Montreal to Quebec City is an easy 3-hour drive right up either Canadian Highway 20 or Canadian Highway 40. 40 skirts the north edge of the St Lawrence River while 20 runs just to the south of the river. We chose highway 40 and stopped for a nice breakfast in the city of Trois Rivieres, at about the halfway point.

  • Bicycle

    Montreal Transportation

    If you are tempted to use the BIXI, the Montreal version of the city rental bike system you should be warned. The bike ride may cost more than a limosine unless you familiarize yourself with the (deliberately?) strange fee system presented in French on minute displays. It appears You must put the bike into a bike stand at short intervals, otherwise...

  • Quebec City on foot

    Quebec Transportation

    When you come to explore Quebec City.....it is imperative that you bring good footwear along with you... To really see and experience Old Quebec City I think the best way to see the most if its possible is by WALKING...... In my opinion to rent a car is a total waste of money....for the odd thing you might want to see or do that would require a...

  • Horse carriage rides

    Quebec Transportation

    A very popular way to enjoy the city of Quebec was by horse and carriage and obviously a very romantic thing to do in the night time I guess if you were with a friend. I didn't bother taking one alone but there were no shortage of horses around the city. I enjoyed just seeing and watching the horses themselves, they were all beautiful animals.

  • Motorcycle

    Montreal Transportation

    It truly makes sense...warmer days, motorcycling is IT. To this day I laugh to a very humble photo that tells it all...this is Montreal for you...red high heel shoes, short shorts and a free mind on a motorcycle. This is a city that wakes up in the summer; a city that allows its people to absorb it all in a few months of its 'glory'...sunshine,...

  • Allo Stop (car pooling)

    Quebec Transportation

  • Bus to the Luarentians

    If you depend on public transport, getting to the Laurentians is best done with the bus that goes from Montreal's main bus station. The Galland group is the one that runs the only bus to the area. It took more or less 3 hours from St Jovite to Montreal with all the stops on the way. It was a pretty drive, bus was clean and comfortable bus...

  • Tough old bush plane

    During my June, 1990 business trip to Hydro-Quebec's huge complex of dams at Radisson, near Hudson Bay, we were treated to an all-day fishing trip on the shores of the Bay. A total of 18 people were flown 100 miles further north to Hudson Bay in two venerable bush planes. DeHavilland Canada 'Otters', the one shown here was built in 1957, are the...

  • Metro de Montreal

    Since the 1960's, Quebec's public transportation system has been a leader. In Montreal specifically, the Metro system is a great way to get from one side of the city to the other efficiently without braving the cold of winter.This is especially nice when travelling more than three or four blocks, as your face may likely freeze off!Of particular...

  • Car Ferry MV 'Madeleine'

    For our trip to the not easy to reach Iles de la Madeleine, we booked ourselves for passage on the car-ferry 'Madeleine', about 2-weeks before we planned to leave. In peak season, it is best to book even further in advance. The 'Madeleine' is a 400 foot, 6800 ton, 20 knot Roll-On Roll-Off ferry, capable of carrying 700 passengers as well as...

  • A car provides great flexibility

    Quebec is a big province with lots of things to see and do. As a result, taking either your own vehicle or a rental really is adviseable if you want to be free to explore at your leisure. We took our own car to the Isles de la Madeleine and the Gaspe and have made several drives through the southern part of Quebec as well. This van was a business...

  • Enjoy the Views from the Ferry

    North of Quebec City, where the people are few and the river is broad, there are no more bridges across the St. Lawrence. That means travel is by ferry. For the vacationer with leisure time, this is good -- a chance to get out of the car and enjoy the view of the mighty river. Often, we have seen marine mammals on our crossings. In 2001 when we...
