Public transportation

Public transportation is a great way to see the city. Hop on the metro and it’s only about 10-15 minutes to a myriad of museums, attractions and restaurants and to Old Montréal.
A special transit pass, called the Carte touristique, has been designed specifically for individuals attending conventions in Montréal. It gives holders unlimited access to the city's public transportation system for one or three days, depending on the pass purchased. This includes the use of four subway lines accessed by 60 metro stations, as well as more than 150 bus routes.

$3.25 CA for a one way ticket
$10.00 CA for a one-day Carte touristique
$19.00 CA for a three-day Carte touristique
All rates quoted above are subject to change.
