 International and local travel

 

 

Air Transportation

Montréal-Trudeau Airport (YUL) is served by most major airlines.

 

Ground Transportation from the airport to downtown hotels

Taxis and public transit are all available from Montréal-Trudeau airport to the Congress-designated hotels. Uber is also available in Montréal.

 

  1. Taxis

Taxis are an inexpensive and comfortable way to get around Montréal. You can get a taxi at the arrivals level near the central exit located where a dispatcher will assist you. No reservation is required. For taxi transportation between the airport and downtown (including the Congress-designated hotels) (about a 20-minute ride), the rates are fixed at C$41 one way, and there is always a minimum charge of C$17. It is customary to tip the drive anywhere from 10% to 20%, with 15% being the average. Visa, MasterCard and American Express are often, although not always, accepted.

 

  1.  Public Transit

The 747 shuttle service (http://www.stm.info/en/info/networks/bus/shuttle/747-p-e-trudeau-airport-downtown-shuttle) runs 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, between Montréal-Trudeau airport and downtown. Once you leave the customs hall, follow the signs for shuttle bus/navettes just outside the terminal. Travel time may vary between 30 to 45 minutes, depending on traffic conditions. Fares are only C$10 for unlimited travel throughout the STM bus and metro networks during 24 consecutive hours. The fare card can be purchased at the airport from automated dispensers that accept cash, debit and credit cards. If paying onboard, only coins are accepted - no bank bills.

 

 

There are two routes of the 747 bus. If you stay in the Congress-designated hotels, please take the Berri-UQAM terminus route. For Zero 1 hotel, you can get off at Saint-Laurent Street, and for Chrome, Candlewood, and Faubourg hotels, please get off at the next stop at l’Hotel-de-Ville. Your hotels are just across the street. From your hotels to the airport, the 747 bus station is within 10 meters from your hotel front door, on the same side of the street.
