Montreal is a compact city made for people. Unlike many North American cities, you don't need a car. You can move around cheaply and easily on foot, bike, bus and metro. Plus, Concordia students get an added benefit: a free shuttle bus service that runs between our two campuses.
Concordia Shuttle Bus
- Provides transportation for students, faculty and staff from campus to campus. The buses stop in front of the Hall Building at the downtown campus (SGW) and in front of the Loyola Chapel.
- The ride takes approximately 20 minutes and beats public transportation any day and it's free.
- Check shuttle bus times.
Bus or metro
The public transit system, run by the Société de transport de Montréal, will get you anywhere in the city for an affordable price.
- The Metro is the easiest way to get around Montreal with 4 lines - 68 stations. It will take you pretty much anywhere you want to go in Montreal.
- It connects with the rest of the public transport system - bus, commuter train services and even the main national buses and train stations.
- Full-time students 18-25 can take advantage of a reduced monthly fare.
Montreal often rated the most bike-friendly city in North America. There are over 660 km of well-maintained bike paths on the island. Many streets have reserved bike lanes making it safe for cyclists. Just make sure you have a helmet and a good lock!
