Montreal now offers cheap bus rides to Trudeau aiport




Great news for travellers on a budget: the 747 Express is a bus which charges $7 for a one-way ticket from several points in Downtown to the Montreal Trudeau Airport (formerly known as Dorval Airport). The bus leaves every 20 or 30 minutes from Montreal's main bus station and makes several stops along René Levesque street:

    * DEPARTURE: Montreal's Central Bus Station (Centre d'Autocars de Montréal) near Berri-UQAM Metro Station: corner of Berri & De Maisonneuve
    * on René-Lévesque, corner of St. Laurent
    * on René-Lévesque, corner of de Bleury
    * on René-Lévesque, corner of Mansfield
    * on René-Lévesque, corner of Peel
    * on René-Lévesque, corner of de la Montagne
    * on René-Lévesque, corner of Bishop
    * Lionel-Groulx Metro Station
    * FINAL STOP: Montréal-Trudeau Airport

The same bus leaves Trudeau Airport every 20 or 30 minutes and makes the same stops, in reverse order:

    * DEPARTURE: Montréal-Trudeau Airport
    * Lionel-Groulx Metro Station
    * corner of Guy and René-Lévesque
    * on René-Lévesque, corner of Drummond
    * on René-Lévesque, Peel
    * on René-Lévesque, corner of Mansfield
    * on René-Lévesque, corner of Jeanne-Mance
    * on René-Lévesque, corner of St. Laurent
    * FINAL STOP: Berri-UQAM Metro Station, corner of Berri & De Maisonneuve

  1. Its worth pointing out that the $7 ticket is actually a day pass. Weekly and monthly passes work as well, so if you ride the bus or the metro more than once its an even better deal.
