Trudeau by 747 express buses
If you plan to take public transportation during your stay in Montreal, it is best to buy your pass at the airport, as it will also include access to use the 747 express buses at no additional charge.  A STM (Société de transport de Montréal) ticket stand is located before the exit.  You can also pay for the bus service in cash, but be sure to have exact amount in coins, as bills are not accepted on board as payment.  If you require change, there is exchange office to the right of the International Arrivals exit.   Note:  Purchase of the express bus ticket on board the bus will also provide you with access to the Montreal bus and metro network for the next 24 hrs.
