For a 3-4 day visit in Montreal, what would be the most convenient & cost-effective way to use the city's public transit system?

Single tickets, some kind of day travelcard, or something else?

Also, are the same tickets valid on the metro and buses?

(Context: sightseeing, general wandering around, some nightlife. Accommodation downtown, near the Berri-UQAM station.)

You can get 1- or 3 day (tourist) passes. More at . We used them a couple of years ago - they worked just as advertised.
