Montreal/Hochelaga-Maisonneuve

Hochelaga-Maisonneuve is a district in Montreal. Located a ways east of downtown, it features the Olympic Stadium and other major attractions.

Get in

By metro

This area is served by the Green Line stops between Frontenac and L'Assumption, but Viau and Pie-IX (pronounced "pea-nuf," not "pie nine") will get you to most of the attractions.

By bus

From downtown, the Ontario 125 runs along Ontario, veering left to terminate at Viau metro next to the Biodôme. The Sherbrooke 185 picks up from the end of the Sherbrooke 24 at Frontenac metro. The Mont Royal 97 terminates at Pie-IX on the edge of the Botanical Gardens.

Get around

Most of the attractions and restaurants are clustered around Sherbrooke between Pie-IX and Viau metro. It's a 20 minute walk from the entrance to the Botanical Gardens to the Biodome. To explore more of Hochelaga, it's a longer trek not served by metro, but there are plenty of buses and taxis.

By bus

The 85 Hochelaga runs through the center of Hochelaga from Joliette metro to Honore-Beaugrand, at the end of the Green Line. Pie-IX 139 and Cadillac 32 run from Sherbrooke down to the industrial riverfront.

See

The big four attractions here, the Olympic Stadium, Insectarium, Jardin Botanique, and Biodôme, can all be covered in one trip, but allow a good four hours.
