Student Outings in Montreal

With its distinct combination of European charm and laid-back island vibe (yep, it’s an island!), Montreal is particularly attractive as a destination amongst students. Whether your group is looking to hit up the hotspots within the city limits, or go off-island for a picturesque student camping trip near Montreal, a charter bus rental is the easiest, safest, and most flexible way to get you where the action is.

La Ronde

The second largest theme park in Canada, La Ronde is most famous for Le Monstre, the highest old-school wooden double-track roller coaster in the world. There are 9 other coasters throughout the 140-acre park, and plenty of other thrill rides to get the adrenaline pumping. It’s also a great vantage point for watching the international fireworks competition in the summer months.

City Highlights

Get caught up in the magnificent bustle of the Old Port, stop by the famous Schwartz’s Deli for lunch, take a selfie with the city at the top of Mount Royal… so much to do, so little time! Get all the sights in, and then some, with a custom chartered tour bus!

Camping

You don’t have to travel far from Montreal to pitch a tent under the stars, but the farther you go, the more secluded your spot may be. And you don’t even have to pitch a tent at all.Many of Quebec’s popular camping destinations offer cabins and other amenities if you don’t feel like roughing it.

Old Port

The Vieux-Port de Montréal is a place where the old and the new collide, with buildings and cobblestone streets dating back almost half a millennium occupied by trendy restaurants, bars, and shops. It’s also home to the Montreal Science Center, a giant ferris wheel, and a pirate obstacle course.

Concordia University

Concordia University has two campuses, one in the heart of downtown, and the other in the student hub that is Montreal’s Notre-Dame-de-Grace neighborhood (or NDG, to locals).

Spring Break in Montreal

Little-known fact: springtime is a wonderful time to visit Montreal. After a long winter, everyone is dying to get outside, and the city truly comes alive. In fact, at the first sign of spring, you’ll see locals in t-shirts enjoying a pint or a cocktail on terraces across the city, and the mood is electric.

 

Keep in mind, though, that it can still be pretty chilly, especially for those coming from more temperate climates. Rely on a cozy, heated charter bus to get you to and from Montreal’s coolest (pun intended) tourist spots. Enjoy a spa day on a boat at Bota Bota in the Old Port, or bar hop along trendy St-Laurent Boulevard (dubbed The Main by locals). Check out a Habs game at the Bell Center, or catch a show at one of the city’s legendary music venues.

 

Bus.com’s top priority is your schedule and your safety, so however you choose to spend your week of freedom, you’ll be in good hands. Find more tips and tricks for planning the perfect spring break here.

Montreal Ski Trip Bus Rentals

Quebec’s unique landscape offers a variety of ski hills befitting all levels of skiers and snowboarders. While Mont Tremblant enjoys something of a celebrity status, other resorts such as Mont Sutton and Ski Bromont offer magnifique skiing experiences, at a shorter distance from Montreal, to boot.

 

Time for some real talk. Driving on Quebec roads in winter is no picnic, and, being in charge of your student group, your number one job is to ensure everyone’s safety. We can’t think of a better way to navigate snow drifts, sleet, or whatever the forecast has in store, than traveling by charter bus.

 

Our team of experienced drivers are trained to adapt to changing road conditions, and the sheer size and weight of the vehicles make them able to withstand the most challenging weather. So your whole group can relax and save the adrenaline for the hill. We’ve got the A-Z on planning the perfect student ski trip here.

Montreal Sports Rally Bus Rentals

From football to soccer to (of course) hockey, Montrealers are fiercely competitive when it comes to sports. Show support for your school by gathering your loudest and proudest and chartering a bus to La Métropole du Québec, where you can root for the away team, and put a little pressure on the home players, too. Check out our coach’s guide to planning a tournament in Montreal for all the information you’ll need.

 

Intimidate your adversaries by painting your faces, learning devastating taunts (en français, of course), and, if you really want to throw ‘em off, getting a custom wrap for your bus with your team’s colors (also perfect for leading a victory parade through the streets). A charter bus gives you the freedom to let loose and get pumped for the big game, and is also a safe place to crash after post-win celebrations. We’d say that’s a score. Get the skinny on everything you need to plan an away-game rally here.

Student Job Fairs in Montreal

Montreal is known for its low cost of living and high quality of life, making it a pretty desirable city in which to live and work. When attending a Montreal job fair, it’s crucial that students put their best foot forward, and one way to help them do that is to book a charter bus. WiFi is one of the many amenities offered on our coach and mini coach buses, allowing students to research potential employers and follow up with recruiters, all from the road (and without going over their precious data).

 

And, let’s face it, your group will be stressed enough, don’t subject them to air travel if you don’t have to. Your charter coach bus will pick you up when you want, where you want, and offers spacious seating that is more akin to a living room than a cramped plane, so your classmates can arrive relaxed, and ready to slay their interviews. For tips on how to do just that, and more, check out our guide to student job fairs.

 

For groups on a stricter budget, even the minibus or school bus offers the peace of mind and reliability that public transportation lacks, so students can arrive cool, calm, collected, and confident that they’ll knock some socks off. Check out our quick guide on how to choose the bus type that’s right for your group.
