Explore Montréal with public transit
Here are some suggested itineraries that will let you explore Montréal aboard one of its 220 bus lines or stroll through the area around one of its 68 métro stations!
Have you ever travelled through the centre of Montréal by bus? You should! Climb aboard the 55 – Boulevard Saint-Laurent bus and open your eyes and ears wide, you’re in for a lovely ride!
If there is one east-west street that truly grabs your attention, no doubt that is Sherbrooke street. For the price of bus fare, you get to see the sights along one of Montréal’s most prestigious avenues.
From Place des Arts to Parc-Extension, by way of Mount Royal and Mile-End, the 80 – Du Parc bus line definitely feels trendy.
In Hochelaga-Maisonneuve, Ho-Ma, a densely-populated area featuring mature trees lining its streets and a distinctive architectural style, rue Ontario acts as its main artery. You can feel its vibrancy aboard the 125 – Ontario bus.
Without actually going full circle, the 129 Côte – Sainte-Catherine bus runs along its side, almost like an arm around the mountain’s shoulder. Riding aboard the 129 bus means going beyond the mountain, City Hall in Old Montréal to the Côte-des-Neiges district.
The Berri-UQAM, Saint-Laurent and Place-des-Arts métro stations transport you to the heart of the action!
Let us suggest some districts full of history: Vieux Lachine, Sainte-Geneviève, Vieux Saint-Laurent and Vieux Pointe-aux-Trembles!
Montréal has many city parks and green spaces and a few a close to métro stations. Take advantage of that! A picnic basket and tablecloth, a blanket and a good book are often all you need for a change of scenery after leaving the métro.
Living on an island gives you the benefit of some riverside landscapes. Our buses get you there. Take the opportunity for a lovely excursion a short distance from home.
