provides several transportation options for access to greater Montreal. The
easiest way for passengers at Montreal Airport to access the heart of the city is

Berri Terminal passengers can board a free shuttle bus service that will take
them to over 30 Downtown Montreal Hotels (included in ticket price). Another
option once at Berri Terminal is to transfer to the Montreal Metro (subway)
system. Metro Green, Orange, or Yellow lines service Berri-UQAM Station.
