Driving in Moncton
Driving in downtown Moncton in winter requires concentration due to plowed snow that may be several feet high along the streets.

Traffic is heavier in the earlier evening downtown, but it lightens up once outside the downtown perimeter. Downtown can get a little congested at the lights, with start-and-stop traffic, but it's nothing drastic. Expect pedestrian traffic, taxis, and buses and bus lanes. There's plenty of directional signage as well as signs noting pedestrian walkways.
The main route heading into downtown is NB Route 106 (Main Street). Gas stations near the downtown area include Ultramar and Esso.
