ace fans wait all year for the fast-paced nightlife and cars that rock Montreal for F1 weekend, so itâ€™s obvious that spending your whole weekend driving and waiting around is to be avoided as much as possibleâ€¦
Drawing an estimated 500,000 in recent years, Montreal Grand Prix is one of the largest tourism events in Canada, so some degree of hold up regarding travel time is to be expectedâ€¦
But for those who want their weekend moving above a snailâ€™s pace as much as possible, cut down on travel time and tedium with these tips on getting to the races:
â†’Do NOT drive or cab
Traffic is crazy on F1 weekend, and though metro will be packed, it is the quickest and best way to go for transporting you to and from the races.
â†’Plan ahead, leave early
Even though itâ€™s easy enough to follow the droves of people to the races, figuring out when and how to get to the races (including the fastest way to get to your seat) in advance will save you time.
â†’Get bus tickets in advance
Getting bus ticket packages in advance will not only save you money, but save you time by avoiding the hassle of waiting in line to buy tickets on your way to and from the races. STM is selling a great 3-day Tourist Card for $14, giving you unlimited rides for the 3 days of the races.
For serious F1 fans only: You can distinguish yourself from the masses with VIP access and VIP entry to the races, one of the many features of our ultra-exclusive F1 Paddock passesâ€”which donâ€™t only help you make the most of the races, but of the legendary Montreal F1 nightlifeâ€”allowing you VIP entry to clubs that others will wait in lineups for all night long and never get into.
