But better to get the bus from the metro to the casino, then it’s only a 10 minute walk. Not sure if you can pre-book the metro pass, easier to just buy it at the station on your first day. I loved Canada this year, it’s really well organized and great atmosphere in the city

After that you need to walk across the bridge. It should take around 15-20 minutes to get to your grandstand.

Try to stay near a Metro station and you will easily be able to get there.

I also took the metro the whole weekend, though I avoided the peak times where possible. The 777 Casino bus was also very handy! What a great circuit and fun city. I’ll definitely be back in Montreal!

We stayed near Berri-UQAM Metro station and bought the 3-day Metro pass for $19. Thank you for that tip! Once at Jean-Drapeau station we walked the first day to the track (Grandstand 1) and back. The second day we took the 777 bus from Jean-Drapeau station which goes to the Casino, so you walk from there. And then we knew where to catch it afterwards, going back to the Metro station. One of the advantages of taking the bus is that you bypass one of the security checkpoints on the bridge which had a super long line when we passed it. There is a bit of a wait for the bus though, it seems there was maybe 2 or at the most 3 of them running.

I’m in the “normal” 12 this weekend so could look down on the fancy lounge-sets and bar-service you get there and these include the interior ferry service. Probably costs a small fortune though…
