Getting Around Montréal

Montréal 2006's transportation plan is relatively simple as all the venues are directly accessible by subway (métro). As such, upon registering, all participants will receive a one-week pass providing them with free use of the city's safe, clean and efficient public transportation system (métro and bus) for the entire duration of the Games. This network is comprised of 65 métro stations and over 1,600 bus itineraries criss-crossing the length and breadth of the city, with service available 24 hours a day along the most traveled bus routes. What's more, many of Montréal's major hotels offer direct access to the subway by way of our extensive underground city.

From the Village, the information heart of the Games located directly above the central Berri-UQAM métro station, no particular Games venue is more than 20 minutes away by public transportation. Thus, those wishing to attend several different events over the course of a day will be able to do so quickly and efficiently- convenience that is sure to be greatly appreciated by participants and spectators alike.

Moreover, in order to ensure the best access possible to Zone 2  . Jarry-Robillard, a shuttle bus will depart from the Crémazie métro station destined for Centre Claude-Robillard, and Villeray, Henri-Julien and Jarry Parks.

And, for those opting to use one of the most preferred modes of transportation by Montrealers - the bicycle - they'll be delighted to discover that the city also offers a network of close to 300 kilometres (186 miles) of cycling paths. In the March 1999 issue of the noted American magazine, Bicycling, Montréal was recognized as the most bicycle-friendly city on the continent, selected over such centres as Portland (Oregon), Tucson, Seattle, Toronto, Austin, Denver, San Francisco, Philadelphia and Chicago. The single most important reason for the award is the fact that more Montrealers per capita ride bicycles than any other people in North America, on many paths available in the city.
