By the way, your $10 ticket for the 747 bus is good for the whole day, you can use it later in the day for unlimited bus and metro rides.

Just to be 100% correct, the $10 ticket is good for 24 hours. The 3 day pass is good for 3 calendar days.

Sorry to jump in here, but can the 3 day ticket be purchased at the airport?

And can you get a taxi for 5 people?

Thanks

Taxis: at the airport you can get a taxi van. Just line up in the designated area, and tell the taxi attendant that you want a van.

Metro/bus tickets: you can purchase these from the machine at the airport, look for the signs for the bus and there are a couple of machines inside the airport (they are at the far right of the airport as you face the road, street level). The 747 is the most direct way downtown, the 1st stop is the Station Lionel-Groulx metro stop, then it makes a few more stops in the downtown area. The regular city bus (204) goes 1st to Dorval Circle which is near the airport, then you can switch to other buses that go downtown, cost is $3, you must have exact change when you get on the bus or buy your ticket 1st in the airport. For the transit map:

Have a great trip.
