Please Note:
*I live near Metro Papineau.
I don’t drive and I would commute by public transport. If the transport time is upto 45 mins, one way, I don’t charge for my commute time. If it’s going to be more let’s talk. I have also used a combo of public transport and getting a ride from my clients.
*I am happy to go outside Montreal as well using bus or train; hosts cover transport costs and transport time is also a consideration.
*Then again people from distant Montreal suburbs and out of town have converged at my place. Refer to Private Class at My Place above.
