Mount Pearl, Newfoundland and Labrador, Canada [1] is the second largest city in the province with a population of over 25,000. The city is a twin sister to St. John's, the provincial capital, having grown from an unofficial playground for the summering rich into a thriving city. Modern Mount Pearl was incorporated in 1955.

Get around[edit]

Your transportation options are taxi, car, walking or bus.

Mount Pearl shares a bus service with neighbouring St. John's and is served by 3 routes (21, 22, 24), in which service varies during the day. Metrobus serves nearly all of St. John's, the neighbourhoods of Shea Heights, Kilbride and the Goulds, and Mount Pearl. The fare is $2.50 per ride (adults and seniors, Jan 2017), and not per distance, making it a very cheap, affordable way of getting around town. A ten-ride pass is $22.50 for adults, $18.00 for seniors. Most, if not all, of the bus drivers are kind and courteous and are willing to give directions. Travellers can check routes and even the current position of any bus on the Metrobus online [2].
