Transportation: If you are flying into Montreal ( Pierre Elliott Trudeau International Airport [YUL]), you will be a two-hour drive from the conference venue (in Lennoxville) and the hotel (in Sherbrooke). You will have three modes of transportation available to you – a shuttle, an inter-city bus, or rental car.
Shuttle: Aéronavette/Aeroshuttle goes directly from Montreal’s Trudeau airport to the city of Sherbrooke — a 2 hour trip. The Aeroshuttle provides customized transportation from the airport to various key points around Sherbrooke. The price for the shuttle is $120 for a return trip, $90 each way. Visit the Aéronavette website for reservations.
Bus: This would be a cheaper, but somewhat time-consuming, way to get to Sherbrooke if you are starting from the airport asyou will need to make your way to the bus station in Montreal and then catch the bus to Sherbrooke:
- Montreal airport shuttle 747 (from Trudeau airport to downtown Montreal bus station). The 747 bus service runs 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, between the Montréal-Trudeau airport and the central bus station (Gare d’autocars de Montréal – Berri-UQAM metro/subway station at 1717 rue Berri Street).Travel time may vary between 45 to 60 minutes, depending on traffic conditions. Cost is $10 (in cash only). Visit the shuttle 747 Website for up-to-date pricing, details, and schedule.
- Inter-city bus from downtown Montreal Gare d’autocars de Montréal to the city of Sherbrooke. From the Gare d’autocars de Montréal bus station take the Limocar bus to Sherbrooke. You will arrive at the Vieille Gare de Sherbrooke downtown (see area on Google map).
Rental Car: This is perhaps the simplest option and also allows you to easily get from the hotel in Sherbrooke to the conference venue on the Bishop’s campus. There are of course a number of options, but hereis the link to book with Enterprise at the Trudeau Airport.
Transportation from Sherbrooke to Bishop’s University campus.
There are two options:
- You can take the city bus #2 from downtown Sherbrooke to Bishop’s campus. For hours and rates, view the STS Website (in French only).
