Getting Around Montreal：
The best ways to get around Montreal are on foot or by public transportation. Montreal is a very walkable city, but if your feet do grow weary, the Montreal Metro and bus are both cost-efficient and easy to use. There is also a public shuttle bus that runs between downtown and the Montréal–Pierre Elliott Trudeau International Airport (YUL) and costs CA$10 (roughly $8) per person. You can also take a cab from the airport to downtown, which will cost CA$40 (around $31).
The city operates an extensive public transportation system that includes both underground rail (métro) and bus lines. Métro stations are marked clearly above ground by blue and white signs and are easily navigable. There are four lines with plottable routes. Above ground, public buses fill out areas that the métro doesn't cover. While buses are sometimes a little tricky to figure out, the Montreal Transport Society's website offers tools to help you plan your trip.
Fares are charged by the ride, not by distance, and the price is the same as for the métro. Single fares cost CA$3.25 (around $2.50), and there are discounts for children, students and senior citizens. To save money, consider purchasing a one-day unlimited-ride card for CA$10 (around $8) or a three-day card for CA$18 (about $14). If you're visiting on the weekend, you can purchase an Unlimited Weekend pass – valid from 6 p.m. Friday to 5 a.m. Monday – for CA$13 ($10).
