Public Transportation

It’s easy to get around Montréal using public transit. The transportation network of the Société de transport de Montréal (STM), which includes the Montréal metro and bus network, will allow you to travel throughout the city and to visit its main attractions. Buses can be used in complement with the metro, and fares give access to both.

The fare for one trip is currently $3.25. If you plan to use public transit several times a day for several days, 3-day and 7-day tickets are available at a reduced cost. Tickets can be purchased in metro stations.

You will find a map of the public transit network at the following address: http://www.stm.info/fr/infos/reseaux/plans-des-reseaux
