The Aeroshuttle provides customized transportation from the airport to various key points around Sherbrooke. Visit the Aéronavette website for pricing and reservations.


Inter-city bus from Montreal to Sherbrooke — 2 hour drive

If you arrive at Trudeau airport and you prefer to take the inter-city bus to Sherbrooke, take the 747 shuttle to the Gare d’autocars de Montréal.

The 747 bus service runs 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, between the Montréal-Trudeau airport and the central bus station (Gare d’autocars de Montréal – Berri-UQAM metro/subway station at 1717 rue Berri Street).

Travel time may vary between 45 to 60 minutes, depending on traffic conditions. Cost is $10 (in cash only). Visit the shuttle 747 Website for up-to-date pricing, details, and schedule.

Arrival on the Bishop’s University Campus

Students arriving on campus Saturday, Sunday or after 5:00 p.m. on weekdays who have confirmed a room in residence should go directly to the Security Office located in the Dewhurst Dining Hall building on the Bishop’s campus.
