When it comes to Montreal transportation, our Metro is Canada’s second-busiest rapid transit system and North America’s fourth busiest rapid transit system, after the New York City Subway, the Mexico City Metro, and the Toronto subway! The Metro was inaugurated on October 14, 1966. Since then, it has expanded from 26 stations on three separate lines to 68 stations on four lines totalling 69.2 kilometres! That means you can get all over the island of Montreal with connections to Longueuil and Laval.
At BRiX, you’re only a seven-minute walk from Central Station! This station is a major access point for all Montreal transportation types, including the Metro, buses, and trains. Located in Montreal’s heart, Central Station is a gateway to the downtown core no matter where you need to go! From here, you can take via rail trains all over Canada and commuter trains around the city. You also have access to the Bonaventure metro station and McGill metro. But wait, there’s more! You’re also less than a 10-minute walk from Place D’armes metro and Square Victoria Metro. These underground transportation options are ideal for getting around the city fast, and in winter, you barely have to be outside!
