Montreal is the most populous city in the province of Quebec and the 2nd most populous in Canada. Downtown is a mere 20 minutes by car from the Pierre-Elliott Trudeau International Airport, which is connected by direct flight to 140 destinations offered by 30 carriers.


All visitors entering Canada must present a valid passport and, in certain cases, a visa. In 2016, Canada introduced new entry requirements known as the Electronic Travel Authorization (eTA) for visa-exempt foreign nationals who fly to Canada. This regulation excludes U.S. citizens and travellers with a valid visa.

The eTA is electronically linked to your passport and is valid for five years or until your passport expires. Applying for an eTA is a simple and inexpensive (CAD 7) online process that will take just a few minutes. Most eTA-eligible applicants will get their authorization within minutes of submitting the on-line form.

For more information about entry requirements and to see if you need to obtain an eTA, visit
Citizenship and Immigration Canada.

The 747 shuttle bus service is the most cost effective and efficient way to travel between the airport and the centre of Montréal and runs 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Once you leave the customs hall, follow the signs for shuttle bus/navettes just outside the terminal.

Travel time may vary between 30 to 45 minutes, depending on traffic conditions. Wi-Fi service is available on most 747 buses.

The fare is $10 (CDN) for unlimited travel throughout the STM bus and metro networks during 24 consecutive hours.

The 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.

For information about schedules and multi-day passes please visit the official 747 Website.

The automated dispensers are identified with the following logo:


Taxi rates are fixed at C$40 to downtown, one-way, and there is always a minimum charge of C$17. It is customary to tip the driver anywhere from 10% to 20%, with 15% being the average. Visa, MasterCard and American Express are often, although not always, accepted; therefore it is strongly suggested to advise the taxi dispatcher of your desired method of payment.
