Hi Poppy022,

Welcome to the OTTTAWA (Canada's Capital City) TRAVEL FORUM

And I see that you are NEW to the TA FORUMS... so a BIG Welcome Aboard as well !!

You really should be asking this Question in the MONTREAL TRAVEL FORUM as that is where you'll find Local Advisors & Destination Experts who are most familiar with the Transportation Options in that particular city (even though your plans ultimately are to get to Ottawa)... they can tell you specifically which services are currently running and where to make the connection (be it right at the Montreal PETrudeau Airport or nearby)

TA MONTREAL TRAVEL FORUM = tripadvisor.ca/ShowForum-g155032-i51-Montrea…

But basically your options are going to be Bus or Train...

* Greyhound Canada = www.greyhound.ca

Not sure if service is available right at the Airport... you may have to go to a location nearby (Dorval or Kirkland depending on time of day) as I recall. Greyhound Service connects thru to Ottawa's Central Bus Station in Ottawa (265 Catherine Street)

* Via Rail = www.viarail.ca

Via Rail's Dorval Station is just yards from the Airport Terminal... BUT you cannot walk to it (due to traffic patterns). You need to use the Via Shuttle (again the folks in the MONTREAL FORUM have the current details) ... The train runs to Ottawa a couple times a day... but not always convenient to all flights... you'll need to check the schedule. Via Rail connects thru to Ottawa's Main Train Station at 200 Tremblay Road.

OR... if you are making a connection to or from a KLM or Air France Flight... there is a Shuttle Bus for their Passengers (info can be obtained from those airlines). The Shuttle Bus also terminates at the Ottawa's Train Station (200 Tremblay Road)

last summer (August) took the KLM/AF bus from PET to Ottawa in connection with a klm flight. At PET there was certainly a sign indicating that a (Greyhound?) bus to Ottawa left from the same point.

In addition to the 6 VIA Rail trains that depart daily from nearby Dorval station and the 6 Greyhound buses that depart daily from the airport, Air Canada also operates 10 flights a day to the Ottawa airport.
