How to get there:

From Ottawa

The best option is the train which takes 2 hours. The first train leaves at 6:30 am and arrives at 8:30am downtown Montreal. From there, take the metro to Papineau station or a taxi.

From Papineau metro station, walk 500 meters East on Ste-Catherine street or take bus 34 from Papineau to Ste-Catherine/Fullum stop.

 

To get back to Ottawa

The event will end by 4:00pm which gives you plenty of time to catch the 4:50 pm train (arrival 7pm in Ottawa) or to stay a little longer in Montreal and catch the 6:50 pm train.
