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.
