Question for travelling within Montreal to see Exporail

Postby RobertInOntario » Oct 9th, '17, 21:53

I'm planning to visit Exporail during the morning / early-afteroon of Saturday October 28. I will be staying right downtown in Montreal (taking my son to another event) and I want to find out if I can take an AMT train from the downtown. I understand that there is a commuter train that leaves from Lucien-l'Allier Station to Delson but -- as far as I can find out from the website -- it doesn't seem to run on weekends. Does anyone know if that's the case?

BTW, we haven't decided yet if we are going to take a VIA Train into Montreal or not. (We'd be driving in from Toronto.) If we do, I will obviously be limited to public transit. However, even if we drive, I'd still prefer to take the AMT train if it's running.

Any help or feedback would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks!

Typical Quebec idiocy...trains not running on the weekends ...and our idiot politicians keep urging us to use public transit...morons! Looks like you either drive yourself if you come by car...or take a taxi which will be huge bucks!!

Thanks! At least I know I will need to drive out to Exporail. We'll figure something out.
Cheers, Rob

If you decide to drive just try to keep informed of the construction closures and bridge closures. If I’m in town I’ll try to keep you updated on traffic issues that weekend.

Sounds good, thanks! Still shopping for VIA deals but I think we will probably be driving.
