How to get to

  • You can take a taxi from the airport (about $45 for a trip downtown) or use the airport downtown shuttle or bus services (http://www.admtl.com/Passengers/AccessAndParking/STMBuses.aspx). The easiest way to go downtown is to take the 747 Aéroport P.-E.-Trudeau / Centre-Ville shuttle (going to Berri-UQAM metro station). The fare is CA$10 for unlimited travel throughout STM bus and metro networks during 24 consecutive hours.
