An integrated highway network connects Greater Montréal to other North American economic hubs. The deregulation situation in North America ensures highly competitive trucking rates and efficient cross-border traffic.
- The Canada-U.S. border is just a 45-minute drive from Montréal
- Toronto and Boston are less than a 6-hour drive, and New York is only 7 hours away
- The Lacolle-Champlain border crossing from Québec to the United States provides direct access to New York, Philadelphia and Washington D.C.
An integrated railway network connects Greater Montréal to every railway network in Canada, the United States and Mexico. The Canadian Pacific (CP) and Canadian National (CN) tracks extend over thousands of kilometres between Montréal and Vancouver and toward the major U.S. cities.
- Every day, container trains head to Toronto, Vancouver, Detroit, Chicago, New York and Philadelphia thanks to a network of 36 specialized intermodal terminals
- Canadian National (CN) is Canada’s largest rail carrier, with a network extending over 32,000 kilometres (19,200 miles). CN’s activities are managed from its corporate head office in Montréal
- Canadian Pacific operates a network of 23,000 kilometres (13,800 miles) that serves all major cities in Canada, as well as the U.S. Northeast and Midwest. Markets in every corner of North America can thus be accessed via the Port of Montréal.
