GETTING AROUND IN MONTRÉAL
All you need to know to get around various festival venues and wander in the city.
BIXI – MONTREAL’S PUBLIC BIKE SYSTEM
One of the best ways to get around Montreal is by bike. Check out BIXI, Montreal’s public bike system, for a quick, easy, and ecological way to move around MUTEK venues and the city! With 24-hour service, BIXI bikes are easily accessible at their numerous stations around town.
STM – MONTREAL’S BUS AND SUBWAY SYSTEM
Using the subway or bus is another convenient way to travel around town, and a great option for longer trips or rainy days. Visit the Société de Transport de Montréal’s website for a map of the subway system, as well as timetables and a handy online trip planner.
You bought your MUTEK weekend pass, why not get your three-day fare card with the STM as well! This allows you to travel by bus and metro around the city for 3 days.
The STM also sells an Unlimited Evening pass, valid for any and all travel between 6 p.m. and 5 a.m. the next morning.
For those of you flying in, make note of the new 747 express bus service from the Montréal-Trudeau airport to downtown Montreal!
Most of the festival’s venues and hotel partners are located within walking distance of each another, so pack a good pair of walking shoes and take in the sights as you stroll.
You can still get around by taxi. You will easily find a lot of different taxi company stands throughout the city. Their rates start at $3.30 + $ 1.60/ km.
