Public transport is a great way to see the city. Hop on the Metro and in just 10 minutes you’re at a museum, restaurant or in Old Montréal. Affordable and reliable, the Metro can be accessed via the city’s Underground Pedestrian Network: two of the four main lines connect downtown to major tourism sites as well as to numerous bus stops and train stations. Weekly passes are available. Metro operating hours are Monday to Friday and Sunday from 5:30 a.m. to 1 a.m., and Saturday from 5:30 a.m. to 1:30 a.m. The average wait time between trains is eight minutes, and three minutes during rush hour. The public bus 747 connects the airport, and downtown and the Metro system ($10CAN).
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. A trip to the airport from downtown will cost you approximately $40CAN – not including tip. Some taxis will also transport bicycles.
