GETTING AROUND BY PUBLIC TRANSPORT
Public transport is a great and sustainable way to see the city. Our public transportation service has received many awards for its initiatives in sustainable development. Hop on the métro or on a bus and in minutes, you’re at a museum, a restaurant or in Old Montréal. To top it all, it’s affordable and reliable.
GETTING AROUND BY TAXI
If you prefer getting around by taxi, it’s easy to flag one down on the street. You’ll also find them at one of the city’s many taxi stands or in front of most major hotels. All taxis accept electronic payment and most taxi company have apps for easy reservation.
GETTING AROUND BY BICYCLE
BIXI, recipient of the Edison Award for Energy & Sustainability, allows everyone to easily explore Montréal’s 600 (375 miles) kilometres of bike paths. A $5 access fee is all it takes to borrow a bike at one of the 460 stations across the city, for a trip on the fly. The first 30 minutes of a ride – no matter how many trips are made in a day – are always free but an additional fee will be added to each subsequent 30-minute period.
