Transportation from the airport


To get from the Montréal-Trudeau International Airport to your hotel or university dormitory, a couple options are available:


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 are required to have a permit and to comply with its terms and conditions. The fixed fare of CDN$40 applies to a taxi trip from the airport to downtown Montréal (one-way). The same trip with Limousine service costs CDN$55-60. A number of adapted taxis, for passengers with reduced mobility, are available at the airport; ask the dispatcher for this service. 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.

The 747 bus line service runs 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, between the Montréal-Trudeau airport and downtown. Travel time may vary between 45 to 60 minutes, depending on traffic conditions. Wi-Fi service is available on most 747 buses. The fare is $10, and includes unlimited travel throughout STM bus and métro networks during 24 consecutive hours. Tickets can be purchased at an easily identified airport booth using credit cards. The $10 fare can also be paid in cash with exact change on board the bus, but only coins are accepted (no bank bills) so it is much better to buy a round trip ticket at the airport terminal. There are departures approximately every 10 minutes.

The conference center is a five-minute walk from the Place-des-Arts subway (métro) station.
