Hello you Montrealers,
I am going flying into YUL next Tuesday. I have a meeting the next day and will be staying at the Aeroport Hilton. I bought a ticket for the Montreal/Vancouver game and wanted an inexpensive way to get to and from the airport and downtown. I noticed on the Dorval website that there is a shuttle to downtown for $21 return. Is there a public transit option that is fairly convenient from the airport, or is the airport shuttle the best option.
Any info. would be appreciated. Thanks in advance.

Thanks for the info. I am from Vancouver, so I'll definitely be cheering for the Canucks. Looks like a shuttle to the Metro might be the best option. When you say a transit strike does that include the metro and buses?

There is not bus service from the Hilton I don't think, but nearby, there is the 211 or the 204 which take you to Metro stations that will get you easily to the Bell Center (which is Lucie L'Allier on the Orange line)

The train is also an option. It is not affected by the strike and the Dorion-Rigaud line goes by near the Dorval Hilton.
The schedule is however intended for suburb residants working downtown.

Yeah the train is almost totally a suburban rush-hour thing -- that's pretty much it's raison d'être , after all-- so unless its schedule happens to fit yours, the city bus is the real public-transit option to use. Which incidentally, is fully available as of a couple hours ago -- the maintenance workers union voted in favour of the latest proposal this afternoon and the strike is over. (Métro`s already running too, at this time)
