Getting to Montréal

By Air

Coming to Montréal by plane has never been simpler. Located just 20 minutes from downtown, Montréal-Trudeau airport offers direct flights from some 30 carriers to over 150 international destinations. Inbound travelers will find everything they need upon arrival, including tourist information and various options for making your way to the heart of the city: car rentals, limousine and taxi service, as well as airport shuttles. The 747 Express bus operates 24/7/365, costs $10 and will get you to one of the nine downtown stops in 40 to 60 minutes (depending on traffic). If you take a taxi, a trip downtown will cost you a flat rate of $41, tip not included.

By Bus

If you are planning a trip by bus, rest assured that many American and Canadian operators come to Montréal, including Orléans Express. You will arrive directly downtown at the Montréal Bus Central Station, which is also connected to the Underground Pedestrian Network via the Berri-UQAM metro station.

By Train

The VIA Rail network connects many major cities to Montréal, and it is by far the easiest way to access downtown. You can choose from 17 daily departures from the Gare centrale, which also gives you access to the Bonaventure métro station, taxi, car sharing, bus, BIXI bike rentals and the Underground Pedestrian Network. You can bring your bike on certain VIA Rail trains too. If you are coming from the United States, the Amtrak trains offer daily departures from many American cities to downtown Montréal.

By Car

Coming to Montréal by car is made easy with the various highways and bridges leading right into the city centre. Did you know that Montréal is an island and it’s just 75 kilometres (46 miles) from the U.S. Border and right on the Trans-Canada Highway? Depending on your point of origin, you may take one of the major bridges—Champlain, Jacques-Cartier or Victoria—or the Louis-Hippolyte-La Fontaine bridge-tunnel to head downtown. Canada uses the metric system, so speeds are indicated in kilometres (100 km/h = 62 mph) and gas is sold in litres (3 3/4 litres = 1 US gallon). Keep in mind that you can’t turn right on red in Montréal or use a hand-held cell phone while driving.
