Driving

Coming to Montréal by car is made easier by the various highways and bridges leading right into the city centre. Did you know that Montréal is an island and it’s just 75 kilometres (46 miles) from the U.S. Border and right on the Trans-Canada Highway? Depending on your point of origin, you may take one of the major bridges—Champlain, Jacques-Cartier or Victoria—or the Louis-Hippolyte-La Fontaine bridge-tunnel to head downtown. Canada uses the metric system, so speeds are indicated in kilometres (100 km/h = 62 mph) and gas is sold in litres (3 3/4 litres = 1 US gallon). Keep in mind that you can’t turn right on red in Montréal or use a hand-held cell phone while driving.
