Answers

Public Transport here in Montreal is excellent. As you are staying in Vieux Montreal you are close to 3 Metro stations. Best place yo look for route will be System de transport deMontreal (STM)
Take any Metro to the Lionel-Groulx station, where you take the 211 bus, which will take you to the West-Island community of Sainte-Anne-de-Bellevue. It is quite a pretty route, once you get off the highway, and it covers a fair bit of geography. The town of Sainte-Anne-de-Bellevue has waterside eateries and is a good place to have lunch or dinner before heading back into the city. website
as is the tiny village of Pointe-Claire, which you reach before the end of the line. Here is a short video tour of what locals call Old Pointe-Claire Village:
