Quebec 511

This indispensable site from Transports Québec offers information to road users.  To learn everything you need to know about current road conditions, you can dial 511, visit their website or download their mobile app.

Radio Circulation 730

Simply pull up their web page for a comprehensive picture of traffic conditions in Montreal and the metropolitan road network.  In the car, you can get the same information by tuning in to AM 730. You’ll get live traffic updates, along with current weather conditions and forecasts.

Google Maps

Easy as 1-2-3, the “traffic” feature of this website lets you see traffic conditions before you even leave the house. All you have to do is visit the website, enter a location, and click on the “traffic” tab in the upper right corner of the screen. Similarly, if you connect to this application on your smartphone, you can easily find out actual traffic conditions indicated by colour. 

Smartphone apps

A number of free and paid smartphone apps exist. They work on the same principle as Google Traffic, namely through user-provided information.

Don’t forget that it’s illegal to use your cell phone behind the wheel. Taking a minute to check your favorite website or app before you leave won’t make you late… especially now that you’ve got some tricks up your sleeve for beating traffic!
