“First ever Subway..Visit the Bio Dome!”

VIA Rail Canada Montreal Station
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed December 4, 2013

This was a new experience. Staying at Ste Catherine location allows you to jump on and go to several places. We visited the Bio-Dome and it was great! We also went to the ? many miles long underground mall , that was an adventure ! The nearby chuches and square were historical and beautiful. This was our first time riding subways and titles were in French..Listen closely when they call the stations! Better yet know where you got on ! Great place to visit

Can't ask for a better location if you have business (or pleasure) to do in downtown Montreal.

No traffic jam and your arrive downtown; close to Ste-Catherine and old Montreal. Travelled by train for business and pleasure and will continue to do so.

It is a busy station but what to expect, you are in downtown Montreal!

First off, the station is under the Fairmont Queen Elizabeth where we stayed, so there was no risk in missing our train as a result of traffic jam from another part of downtown to here. We just took the hotel elevator directly to the level of the station. The station is connected to Montreal's underground city, where there are mind boggling arrays of food outlets, making it very easy NOT to patronize McDonalds or equivalent.

The place is very airy and well marked, so finding your gate is a breeze.

Now the bad part: the tracks are one level down, and it's dark at the platforms. Darker than the Toronto metro platforms, and those in Paris and London underground. Older folks whose eyesight require more light may find it taking longer to adjust.

I have written another review on VIA, which was disappointing, hence my title of this review.

My Wife & I recently took the Via Railway from Montreal to Quebec City and it was the best 3 hour train ride that we have taken.The trains are very comfortable and offer free WiFi on every train.The view this time of the year is fantastic with a good amount of foliage during the trip to Quebec.They offer food & beverage service on the train and the staff is wonderful.
