By Plane

The local airport is called Montreal-Trudeau Airport. From the airport there are two ways to get downtown:

  • By Taxi: A taxi ride costs a fixed rate of $40 CAD plus tip to anywhere in the downtown area (this includes the conference venue, namely, the InterContinental Hotel).

  • By Shuttle Bus: You can also take the 747 Shuttle Bus service. The shuttle runs 24 hours a day, seven days a week and the fare is $10 CAD for unlimited travel throughout the STM bus and metro networks (see the map) during a 24 hour time period. A fare card can be purchased at the airport from the automated dispensers which accept cash, debit and credit cards. If paying on board, only coins are accepted - NO bank bills. Passengers traveling to the InterContinental Hotel need to get off at Stop #7 and then walk to the hotel.
