Travelling to Montreal

By Plane

The Montréal-Pierre-Elliott-Trudeau International Airport is located in the Montréal suburb of Dorval. Therefore, you will need to get downtown by your own means.

We suggest you take the airport shuttle, L’Aérobus, that will bring you straight from the airport to downtown Montréal. The shuttle will drop you off at the Montréal Central Bus Station (505, de Maisonneuve Est) which is served by the Berri-UQAM métro station. A minibus service at no additional charge is also available from the Montréal Central Bus Station to several major downtown hotels (reservation: 514-631-1856). The price of the shuttle for a round-trip is $15.00 one way or $25.00 return for the 45-minute trip (adult fares). Call 514.842.2281 for more info..
