    Montreal Transportation

    The subway (people here call it the metro) is one of the easiest ways to get around Montreal. It's not very expensive either. It can get crowded though, depending on the time of day (morning rush-hour is the worst). Berri-UQAM station is always the most crowded at any point in the day since it's the intersection point for 3 lines. The subway lines...

  • Skytrain (Translink)

    Vancouver Transportation

    In my opinion, one of the best things to have come out of the 2010 Winter Olympics is the skytrain Canada Line that now connects Vancouver airport to the downtown area. Tickets cost $8.75, or $7.50 if you happen to be traveling on the weekend or after 6:30 pm on weekdays. However, to get back to the airport, you don't have to pay the additional...

    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...

    Banff National Park Transportation

    When you're in Banff, most people go to Lake Louise as well. The route to take is Highway 1. Or alternatively, you can take the Bow Valley Parkway. It is slower, more curvy, and you get less grand vistas. But you feel much closer to nature on this route. Many places to stop off for a hike or camping or just to take pictures.
