Affordable transportation

By Concordia shuttle bus

By 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 four 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.
  • All full-time students can take advantage of a reduced monthly fare. Those 65 and up qualify for seniors' rates. Check out the Opus card page for more information.

By bike

Montreal is a very bike-friendly city: There are more than 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!


  • Montreal's public bike-rental system, BIXI, was created for short trips and is an economical form of city travel.
  • Accessible to everyone 24/7 from May to November.
  • More than 400 stations, many located in the downtown core, near bike paths make it hugely popular.
  • Easy to use, pick up a BIXI at any station and drop it off once you reach your destination.
  • A discount is available to Concordians. Learn more on the sustainable transportation page.
  • For more information visit the BIXI website.
