The subway (Métro) is the only way to reach the site of the event. The Gilles Villeneuve Circuit is serviced by the Montreal subway system (Métro) with the Jean-Drapeau station situated at the track. We suggest that you buy public transit tickets which are available at all subway stations. The Parc Jean-Drapeau station is accessible from downtown Montréal (Berri-UQAM station) or from Montréal’s South Shore (Longueuil-Université de Sherbrooke station). Plan a 40-minute subway ride if you are departing from the North End of Montreal, a 25-minute ride from any downtown station and 15 minutes from the South Shore (Longueuil Station). To find out more information about routes, fares or any other information on public transit, please visit the website of the Société de transport de Montréal, the Réseau de Transport de Longueuil or the Société de transport de Laval.

You may have to walk up to 2 km (1.2-mile) before reaching the grandstand seats located in front of the pits or in the Senna corner. Walking shoes, sneakers or flat heels shoes are most appropriate. Please take into account the walking distance to your seat, in order to be on time for the beginning of the race sessions.

From the subway station (Métro), there are two bridges available to access the island where the Gilles Villeneuve Circuit is located. The fastest way to get to the 1, 2, 11, 12 and 33 Grandstands is to turn right (West) and take the pathway alongside the basin and the fountains located outside the subway station. You can then take the Concorde Bridge and follow the signs. To reach the 15, 21, 22, 24, 31 and 34 grandstands (located at the East end of the track), turn left after the subway station building, cross the Cosmos Bridge and follow the signs.

Gear up to make sure you don't miss a thing. Tune into FM radio on your personal radio (frequency to be announced later) to hear the on-track broadcast. Bring a pair of binoculars to get a close-up view of the teams at work if of course your seat is located in front of the pits. You are authorized to take pictures of the cars on track if they are for your personal use only.

The FORMULA 1 GRAND PRIX DU CANADA 2022 program will take place in June 17th, 18th and 19th 2022. We anticipate a warm and sunny weekend, therefore please protect yourself from the summer sun with a hat, a good sunscreen lotion and sunglasses.

If possible, arrive early in order to locate and reach your grandstand seat. If you hold a general admission ticket, you stand a better chance of enjoying the best view by getting to the site early.

Tens of thousands of people will come to the track everyday. Since nobody wants to miss any of the on-track action, food concessions and restrooms will be especially busy between sessions. We ask you to please be patient during these moments. Exiting the site after the race on Sunday will take time, we advise you to relax and visit the beautiful gardens located around the track or enjoy the scenic riverfront views of Montreal.
