Arrival at the airport

On August 8th from 09:00-0:00, there will be a "Wikimania Welcome Desk" at the international arrivals hall at the airport. They will be able to point you in the right direction for transportation as well as answer questions about Montréal. If you arrive in the domestic arrivals hall and would like to visit the Welcome Desk, simply walk to the other end of the terminal (arrivals level) 2 minutes away. The distance between the two arrival halls is a 1 minute walk (0.11 miles).

Airport transfer

Es gibt zwei einfache Wege um vom Flughafen in die Montréaler Innenstadt zu gelangen: mit dem Taxi zum Festpreis von CAD 40 (approx. USD 31 / € 29 / £ 25) oder mit Buslinie 747 der Montréaler Verkehrsbetriebe Société de transport de Montréal für CAD 10 (approx. USD 8 / € 8 / £ 7). Der 747er fährt alle zehn Minuten und hält direkt vor dem Veranstaltungsort.

Metro and public transit

Die Stadt Montréal ist gut durch den öffentlichen Personennahverkehr abgedeckt. Die Montréaler Verkehrsbetriebe Société de transport de Montréal, STM betreiben zahlreiche Buslinien, sowie die U-Bahn. Für die, die in den Vororten wohnen, organisiert die Agence métropolitaine de transport die Vorortzüge.

The tickets for the subway are sold through automated kiosks or in person. You can get a OPUS RFID card for simplified public transit, or a tourist pass for 3 or 4 days.

The subway is open from 5:30 AM daily and closes between 00:35 and 01:30.

In addition to regular app-accessible commercial taxi companies such as Taxi Coop and Taxi Diamond, the downtown area around the venue is serviced by eco-friendly and affordable service TéoTaxi. Uber services are also active and highly popular with both riders and drivers in Montréal. Taxis are available for a fixed price of CAD $40 (approx.
