Free metro rides all summer in Montreal

The metro system in Montreal is the easiest (and fastest) way to get around, especially during the summer months when there are so many festivals, performances and things to do across the city.  

To encourage Montrealers and summer visitors to use public transit as a means of transportation, the City of Montreal has announced that access to the metro will be free of charge at seven stations located near downtown tourist attractions during the summer weekends. 

Whether you’re planning to hit one of Montréal’s incredible beaches in and just outside of town, or looking to park it in some of the city’s best green spaces and hiking trails, taking the metro is always a good idea—especially if it’s a free ride. 

When do the free metro rides start?

Starting on June 24 until September 5, anyone and everyone can ride 7 metro stations for free on weekends. 

Which metro stations are providing free access?

Seven stations located near downtown tourist attractions during the summer weekends will be offering free rides: Saint-Laurent, Place-des-Arts, Peel, Champ-de-Mars, Place-d'Armes, Berri-UQAM and McGill—a few steps from Time Out Market Montréal in the Eaton Centre. Berri-UQAM, Champ-de-Mars and Place-d'Armes are universally accessible and are equipped with elevators.
