Air travel[edit]

The (Montreal) Pierre-Eliott-Trudeau International Airport (YUL IATA) offers flights from numerous popular destinations including New York City, Paris and London. You can get into Longueuil from YUL with the 747 bus (to Downtown Montreal) then take the metro to the Longueuil-Université-de-Sherbrooke station on the yellow line. Single fare of 8$ on the 747 with the rest of the day free on all of the STM's public transit network, including the metro.

The St-Hubert Airport (YHU IATA) offers flights from regional locations in Quebec, including Jean-Lesage Airport in Quebec City. This airport is much closer from Longueuil than YUL, with the RTL bus 28 directly from the airport to the Terminus Longueuil via the Chemin Chambly and St-Charles street, the 2 main commercial and historic streets in the city. The bus fares can be found here.

There is a wide network of public transit buses managed by the Réseau de Transport de Longueuil (Longueuil-RTL). The fares can be found here. Most of the buses depart from/arrive at Terminus Longueuil.

Longueuil is served by the Longueuil-Université-de-Sherbrooke station of the Montreal Metro (Yellow line, also known as 4), housed at the Terminus Longueuil building. Fares can be found here.

Longueuil is served by the St-Lambert and St-Hubert stations of the AMT Commuter Trains (Mont-St-Hilaire line, a.k.a. purple). Fares can be found here. TRAM 3 fares serve all public transit of Laval, Montreal and Longueuil (except St-Bruno-de-Montarville, TRAM 5 has to be purchased for this area) (unless noted), while TRAIN 3 will only serve the commuter train network in these areas.
