From Airport to Hotel

We have several ways (the usual suspects) to get to your hotel from Montréal-Trudeau airport.

Shuttle Bus

The Montréal-Trudeau L’Aérobus shuttle service runs from the airport to the Central Bus Station on Berri Street, where a free hotel shuttle bus runs to the Worldcon hotels (we’re checking for exceptions).  Adult fare $16 CAD (one-way, taxes included).

Public Transit

To get into Montréal, you can catch the #204 East bus at the airport’s Departures entrance on the ground level. It goes two places: you want the “Gare de Dorval” bus. From the Dorval train station, you can catch a city bus or commuter train into Montréal. “Place D’Armes” is the Palais station.

You can return to the airport (via the Dorval station) by city bus or on the Montréal-Dorion line commuter train.  The train leaves from downtown’s Windsor Station (near the Marriott Chateau Champlain).  It stops at the Dorval train station, and from there the #204 West bus will take you to the airport.
