Going to Montréal

Take advantage of the maps and listings on Tourisme Montréal website to plan your trip. Getting to Montréal is easy!

If you arrive 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, where the Palais des congrès de Montréal is located and where you will be staying, either at the hotel or with your host family. 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, and the following hotels: Château Champlain, Reine Elizabeth and Sheraton. The price of the shuttle for a round-trip is $22.75 CAD.

If you arrive by train:
The Montréal Train Station is located at 895, de la Gauchetière Ouest in downtown Montréal. It is served by the Bonaventure and the McGill métro stations. Therefore, you will only need to find your way, either to your hotel, your host family or to the Palais des congrès de Montréal.

If you arrive by train:
The city's Central Bus Terminal is located two steps from the Village and is directly linked to the Berri-UQAM métro station. Direct bus connections are available daily to a wide range of both Canadian and American destinations. Travellers may also choose to take advantage of Canada's excellent highway network to make their way to Montréal. It is only five hours by road from Toronto or Boston and six hours from New York City. Montréal is only 47 km (29 miles) from the New York border. The New York State Thruway (I-87) becomes Route 15, and U.S. I-89 becomes two-lane Route 133 which joins Route 10 to Montréal. From I-91 in Massachusetts, Routes 55 and 10 lead to Montréal. Visitors coming to Montréal from eastern or western Canada use highways 20 and 40. Québec speed limits are in kilometres (100 kph equals about 62 mph). Gasoline is sold in litres (3 3/4 litres equals 1 U.S. gallon). Getting to Montréal is easy!
