The international airport in Montreal is called Pierre Elliott Trudeau and its code is YUL.

There are only two ways to get to the Tor hotel from the YUL airport:

  1. You take a cab which will cost you 40$CAD fixed rate. Usually, you include a little tip ;). ALL taxis in Montreal MUST allow you to pay by card or cash and get a receipt.

Be aware, it won't be a fixed rate if you are outside of the boundary of downtown. Every cab has a map glued to the passanger window showing what are the boundaries (street names).

  1. Public transport. Unfortunately, no tram or metro from the airport exists so there is a single bus line name the "747" (get it?). It goes from the bus central station (Berri-UQAM) downtown to the airport stopping a little bit in between.

It costs 10$CAD and takes approximately 50-60 minutes to go to your destination. You exit the bus at René-Lévesque / Saint-Laurent and then it's a 4 minute walk to the hotel. This map from the Overmind shows you the path:

It's not that big of an airport so US or International, you will exit at the same place. You will quickly notice, pass the people waving at you or waiting for Mr. Tremblay, at least one big orange machine:

It is the machine you can use to buy a bus ticket. If you are having trouble, there are lots of kiosk to help you out nearby. You can even see one on the left of the picture ;).

For people arriving from Canada, it's an exit a bit further away so just follow the signs :).
