Driving is a great mode of transportation in Saint-Michel. Many houses for sale are a rather short car ride from the closest highway, such as Autoroute Félix-Leclerc, and accessing a parking spot is easy. In contrast, travelling by public transit is difficult in Saint-Michel. Thankfully, homeowners benefit from around 20 bus lines, and bus stops are not very far away from most houses. Most houses for sale in this area are located in places that are not very well-suited for those who travel by foot as meeting day-to-day needs is occasionally challenging. This area is also not especially bike-friendly since cyclists are faced with a significant amount of slopes, and the bicycling network is sometimes poor.

Concerning food, it is convenient to get to the closest supermarket by walking in this part of the city. There are also around 30 restaurants and coffee shops in Saint-Michel.
