Soon, I'll be visiting Montreal for many weeks of summer language school. It'll be my first trip to Quebec. I like to plan ahead, so I'm playing with Google Maps to figure out how to get from where I'll be staying, over to where I'll be studying, on public transit.

So... is there some secret trick to getting reasonably-priced transit passes? A secret code-word or something?

Oh, and Google Maps is great, but it's missing a coolness factor button to indicate where the coolest stuff is in a particular area.

So, for those of you who live in the area, I'll be traveling every day from near Rue Anne-Marie Est & Avenue Papineau over to school near Rue St-Denis & Rue Sainte-Catherine Est. What are the coolest things to see around there during my daily travels?

Well for one thing, you'll be in the very heart of happening neighborhoods bordering the Plateau and eastern downtown which is the latin quarter. I would make sure to check out little restaurants on Marie-Anne or Duluth streets when you make a date with friends. Summertime is great for discovering terraces in the back of these restaurants. St-Denis street is a long stretch and it is worth comparing its vibe with The Main, or Boulevard St-Laurent.

Public transit costs the same for everyone unless you are a senior or a student younger than 25 - you can get a card that will entitle you to a student discount if you meet the age requirements and are enrolled in school
STM - OPUS Students (12-25 years old)
