Montreal is the second-largest City (with a Population 1.9 million, or in the Metro Area, 3.8 Million) in Canada & the largest City in the Province of Quebec. Originally called Ville-Marie or “City of Mary”, the City takes its present name from Mont-Royal, the triple-peaked hill located in the heart of the City. The centuries-old marriage of Protestant English & Catholic French cultures defines Montreal and has given the City a character unique in North America. Montreal is the second largest primarily French-speaking City in the World after Paris, France. Montreal is well known for having one of the world’s best Night Life, attributed to its relatively late “last-call” (3 a.m.); a large University Population; the drinking age of 18; and the excellent STM Public Transportation System.


The STM (Montreal Transit Corporation) has 68 Stations , 5 Lines, with a Daily Average Weekday ridership in 2010 of 2.4 Million Passengers. The Montreal Metro subway system, was introduced in 1966 in preparation for Canada's 100th birthday and the Expo 67 World Fair in Montreal. It was the second subway system in Canada. Instead of traditional steel-wheeled trains, it is a rubber-tired metro, based on technology developed for the Paris Métro; Montreal's system was the first in the world to be entirely rubber-tired.


While the STM accepts exact change Regular Fares (C$3.00), 65+Senior Fare (C$2.00), a 24 Hour/1 Day Card (C$9.00), or 3 Day Card (C$18.00) are the most economical fares especially for Visitors. All Fares are Subject to Change.


The STM “Family Outings” Programme allows Parents upon presenting their transit fare to travel without additional charge with up to Five (5) children under the age of Twelve (12) on Weekends & Holidays.
