Montréal, June 13, 2017 – Société de transport de Montréal (STM) announces additional service on the 747 - Aéroport P.E.-Trudeau/Centre-Ville, starting June 19.
This service enhancement specifically targets the portion between the airport and Lionel-Groulx métro station to meet greater tourist demand expected this summer. The STM will improve 747 service from these two locations. Overall, it will add some twenty departures a day over the same period last year. Buses will arrive more frequently every day of the week, from 11 am to 7:30 pm.
Established in 2010, the 747 bus line is the only public transit link between the airport and downtown. Service is provided 24 hours a day, seven days a week, between Montréal-Trudeau Airport and Berri-UQAM station. The trip normally takes from 45 to 70 minutes, depending on traffic. Ridership reaches 1.5 million passenger-rides annually.
