This Is The Guide To Montreal Infographic

Being a tourist in Montreal can be a little daunting. No matter the season, there is so much to do, from festivals, to museums, churches, food, and performances. Living in the age of the interwebs as we do, The Morson group decided to help out any clueless newcomers with an infographic-guide to Montreal.

All the major tourists spots are outlined on the infographic, as are some very useful pointers on getting around, places to eat, and, arguably most importantly, where to drink.

For Montreal natives, it's interesting to see how the infographic lines out what a tourist should do in the city, as opposed to what you'd tell your visiting friends and fam to check out. Does the infographic miss all the authentic Montreal-marks and lead people to the city's biggest tourist traps, or is it true to the city's best attractions? See for yourself below.

How helpful is Morson's infographic?

The Quebec government is going to pump a ton of cash into Montreal-area public transit authorities in an effort to, hopefully, make your transit commute better. Chantal Rouleau, Minister of Transport and Minister responsible for the Metropolitan Area and the Montreal Region, announced a $24.8 million financial contribution for mitigation measures in public and active transportation.

"Because public transit is a sustainable solution to road congestion, it is essential for us to maintain the mitigation measures that have been implemented and that have proven their worth," Rouleau said in a press release.

Those of you who pay your metro fare in cash — yes, all three of you — may have to rethink the way you pay in the new year. The Société de transport de Montréal (STM) announced that station agents at its booths will no longer accept cash beginning on February 7, 2022.
