From the Old Port of Montreal to Chinatown, from Little Italy to Plateau-Mont-Royal, Montrealers walk in the city at any time of the day and night. Going from one place to another is easy and enjoyable: from the city center, for example, you can have access to the Underground City, where more than 500 000 people flock every day.
Public transport is a great way to explore the city. Just “hop in the subway” and within 10 minutes you are at the museum, the restaurant or in Old Montreal. The Ritz-Carlton Montreal is just a 5-minute walk from Peel Metro, on the Green Line.
Metros are very present in Montreal: two of the four main lines connect the downtown and the main tourist sites, as well as many bus stops and railway stations. Metros run every eight minutes on non-peak hours and every three minutes on peak hours.
