Shuttle Bus

Orléans Express runs a bus shuttle service between the airport and Trois-Rivières, Ste-Foy and Québec. Greyhound shuttle buses run between the airport and Ottawa's Gatineau Airport. Buy tickets for both at the stand in the passenger drop-off area on the international arrivals level. There are several departures every day.


Most visitors take a taxi from the airport. Cabs queue outside the terminal (call ahead on +1 514 394 7377). The journey takes 30-45 minutes, depending on traffic, and costs a flat rate of C$40 to downtown. A 15% tip on top of this is standard. Limousines are also available, at a flat rate of C$54.50 to downtown.


The simplest route between the airport and downtown is via Autoroute 20 and Autoroute 720. Listen to local radio (such as CJAD 800 AM) for traffic reports. Autoroute 40 and Autoroute 520 is the main alternative. Journey lengths vary according to the time of day. Driving to and from downtown takes around 30 minutes in the middle of the day. In rush hour it can take 45 minutes or longer. Car hire is available at the airport's multi-storey car park opposite the terminal entrance.
