Getting Around

One of the easiest ways to get around is using Montreal Metro. The map and more information is available here. One can easily purchase tickets near any Metro station entrance (either from an attendant, or using a credit/debit card at a ticket kiosk). If you plan to travel farther from downtown than the Montreal island you should be mindful of the zones while purchasing the tickets.

If you are arriving at Montréal–Trudeau International Airport, one of the cheapest ways to get to campus is to take Bus 747 Express, which takes you to the Berri-UQAM station and then take the green line metro to Guy-Concordia.

There are multiple taxi companies available. Uber is also available in Montreal and is a convenient way to get around.

If you rent a car, note that parking near SGW campus can be difficult. See this page for Concordia SGW parking information.
