Transportation

Express Bus 747

Since March 29, 2010, the STM operates a new bus line between the airport and downtown. The new line, No. 747, uses dedicated low-floor buses and operate 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. It replaces the shuttle service previously provided by the company La Québécoise.
The trip between Montréal-Trudeau and the Gare d'autocars de Montréal above Berri‑UQAM metro station (a few hundred meters from the conference venue) takes approximately 35 minutes in off‑peak periods. Stops are also planned at Lionel-Groulx metro station, and along René-Lévesque Boulevard at Guy, Drummond, Peel, Mansfield, Anderson and Saint-Laurent.
[schedule]

You can enjoy unlimited access to the bus and metro network with the 1-day and 3-day tourist passes: one day for 8$CAD or three consecutive days for only 16$CAD. These STM passes are sold at the airport (international arrivals level at the currency exchange location - ICE), at Gare d'autocars de Montréal (central bus terminal) and at the Infotouriste Centre.


Taxis

You can get a taxi or limousine at the arrivals level near the central exit located in front of the cloakroom, where a dispatcher will assist you. No reservation is required. All taxi and limousine operators working out of Montréal-Trudeau airport are required to have a permit and to comply with its terms and conditions.
Taxis have a flat rate to downtown of 38$CAD. Visa, MasterCard and American Express credit cards are accepted. Some drivers accept U.S. currency but provincial regulations require customers to pay in Canadian currency.
