Want to save time? Take the Terminus Métro Lionel-Groulx line!
To reach your destination, we suggest to take the bus named Terminus métro Lionel-Groulx. The bus driver will let you off at Lionel-Groulx métro station, a transfer station equipped with an elevator. This way, you can go on to your hotel faster (roads and highways into the city sometimes experience heavy traffic, just as other big cities!).
If you want to buy your 747 fare card ahead of time
If you have single transit fares (1 trip, 2 trips or 10 trips) on your OPUS card and you add a valid short-term unlimited use pass for the 747 (1-day, 3-day or unlimited weekend pass), the unlimited pass will be used first the next time you validate your OPUS card. To validate your 747 fare card at a specific time, buy it on a non-reloadable card.
- The cost of a ticket is $10.
- Free for children aged 5 and under at all times. The program Family outings is not valid aboard.

Except for the transit fare, only coins are accepted inside the bus (no bank bills).
