About Downtown Montreal

The Downtown Montreal neighbourhood is located on the southernmost slope of Mount Royal and is home to several business offices as well as the vast bulk of the city’s skyscrapers. Buildings cannot be taller than Mount Royal by legislation in order to retain the mountain’s visual supremacy and intimidating aspect. Saint Catherine Street, Canada’s busiest commercial avenue, serves as the central axis for Downtown. High-end retail in Montreal includes the Holt Renfrew Ogilvy department store and the Les Cours Mont-Royal shopping centre. Other major streets include Sherbrooke Street, Peel, de la Montagne, de Maisonneuve and Crescent. 

This Montréal neighbourhood is small enough to be explored on foot yet offers a plethora of things to see and do. It is the city’s financial centre, but it also houses three universities, three museums, and Montréal’s entertainment zone, the Quartier des Spectacles, where important festivals such as the Festival International de Jazz de Montréal take place. Strolling down Sainte-Catherine Thoroughfare, Canada’s longest commercial street will be a treat for shoppers. From there, it’s just a short walk to Montréal’s enigmatic underground city or to the top of Place Ville Marie’s observatory for a 360-degree panorama. A night on the town entails seeing a play at Place des Arts and eating at one of the three swanky new food halls.

Student Travel in Downtown

Living in Montreal is made beautiful by its numerous attractions, but it also offers an outstanding public transit system, particularly for students. The public bus transit system (STM) is convenient, efficient, safe, affordable, and clean.

Walking

Weather permitting, Downtown Montreal is walkable, but be wary of furious vehicles attempting to pass through crowds of pedestrians crossing the street. The new bike lane on Boulevard de Maisonneuve allows for simple and generally safe biking into and out of Downtown Montreal. Many blocks are linked by 30 kilometres of subterranean pedestrian tunnels, arcades, and shopping complexes. When the weather outside is bad, you may wander and buy in comfort.

Rail

Downtown Montreal has two railway stations: Central Station, which provides both intercity (via Train and Amtrak) and commuter rail services of the Réseau de transport métropolitain (RTM). Lucien-L’Allier Station is used by additional commuter trains. Student discounts are available, and single tickets cost CA$3.25 (about $2.50).

Bus

Downtown Montreal also has two bus stations: Gare d’autocars de Montréal, which serves mostly long-distance services, and Terminus Centre-Ville, which serves mostly RTL and Exo services.

Metro

The Montreal Metro has two lines that travel east-west through downtown Montreal. Line 1 (Green) runs parallel to De Maisonneuve Boulevard and serves the following stations (west to east): Atwater, Guy-Concordia, Peel, McGill, Place-des-Arts, Saint-Laurent, and Berri-UQAM. Line 2 (Orange) runs a few blocks south of the Green Line, serving Lucien-L’Allier, Bonaventure, Square-Victoria-OACI, Place-d’Armes, Champ-de-Mars, and Berri-UQAM from west to east.

Student Lifestyle & Living in Downtown Montreal

Downtown Montréal expertly blends business area with high-fashion retail, gourmet dining with cutting-edge entertainment. On any given day, at any time of year, deals are signed over a steak lunch, someone has found the ideal leather jacket, and festivals bring music to the streets. The commercial Montréal neighbourhood is Centre-ville, which translates as “city centre” in French. The atmosphere, on the other hand, is not that of a stuffy business gathering. Instead, the Downtown Montreal centre is brimming with inventiveness. Here are the city’s most popular art museums.

Multi-story paintings engraved onto the sides of skyscrapers await visitors. Fashion may be found not just in stores but also on people walking down the street. The city’s entertainment district, known as Quartier des spectacles, is also located in Centre-ville. Annual events like the Jazz Fest and Just For Laughs have earned Montréal the title of “Penultimate Festival City.” This is an excellent starting point for your Downtown Montréal explorations.

Downtown Montréal offers one part refinement and one part fun at any time of day or night. Students living in Montreal may spend their leisure time participating in some of the city’s most popular activities. The Montreal neighbourhood’s tightly packed streets are home to world-renowned festivals, cutting-edge venues, three universities, a pair of major sports stadiums, some of the city’s best restaurants, irresistible underground shopping options, gorgeous parks, world-class bars, scandalous strip clubs, a ballet company, an opera house, and a symphony orchestra.
