- STM shuttle bus #747 towards Centre-Ville / Berri-UQAM station ($10, includes a 24-hour transit pass). Ticket machines are located in the International arrivals area.
Subway and bus:
- For the Saturday evening banquet at UQAM, the subway (Metro) station is Berri-UQAM. Exit via the doors marked “Université du Québéc à Montréal” and take stairs or elevators to the 2nd floor.
- For the conference at the University of Montreal, in Jean-Brillant building (Jean-Brillant street), the closest subway stations are “Université de Montréal” or “Côte-des-Neiges” on the Blue line. The 51 bus (from Snowdon station on the Orange line) also passes next to the Jean-Brillant building. Note that only the Orange line is handicapped-accessible, at selected stations.
