Traveling to downtown Montreal…

Arriving in Montreal and navigating Montréal–Pierre Elliott Trudeau International is a breeze as it’s one of the best designed airports in the world.

Trudeau also has another winning aspect to it :  the 747 Bus which travels to downtown, to the Gare d’autocars de Montréal terminal / Berri-UQAM métro station and back, 24 hours a day and 7 days a week.  The buses stop at a dozen pre-determined locations, all of which are within short distances of the city’s major hotels.  One-way tickets cost C$ 9.00, significantly less than a taxi, and can be obtained at automated kiosks at Ground Transportation.

You may want to opt for the 3-day pass for C$ 18.00.  It can be used on the 747 bus for your trip downtown.

More importantly, the pass also provides unlimited access on the city’s bus and subway system, a huge cost savings over purchasing tickets ad hoc every time you use the Metro.


The city’s Métro System, composed of myriad bus lines and nearly 70 subway stations, is a marvel.  Although extensive, the subway system is easily navigable and allows travel all over the city with minimal effort.
