Montrealís central airport is the Pierre-Elliot-Trudeau Airport. LíAerobus provides a convenient connection between the airport and Montreal.

Orleans Express offers bus shuttle service from the airport to Montreal as well as other local cities.

Skyport offers winter bus shuttle service from the airport to Mont-Tremblant and Gray Rocks ski resorts. Public transit, The Societe de transport de Montreal (STM) runs route 204 (Cardinal Avenue) which serves the airport from the Dorval terminus. Taxis are also offered outside the arrivals terminal and a dispatcher will help you obtain a taxi or limo.

Montrealís Metro system is clean, efficient, and the ideal way to get to most areas in the city where visitorís will want to go. Fares are by ride, and per ride rates can be quite pricy, so itís highly recommended that visitors purchase the weekly pass which will likely save a fortune. Be prepared to do a good deal of walking in the subway system, some access passages can be quite long, with a number of escalators along the way. And walk fast Ė Montreal residents donít like to dawdle.

The bus system is priced the same as the Metro, but tickets are accepted on both, so you can use the unlimited pass on the buses as well. Buses run throughout the city, however they donít run quite as frequently or quickly as the Metro.

Taxis are available throughout the city, and fares arenít too expensive. They can be found lined up outside most large hotels, or can be hailed on the street.

Montreal is very easy to navigate by car, and parking is never a major issue. Most hotels offer parking garages, and there are plenty of metered spaces downtown and throughout the city. Most major rental car companies are available at the airport.
