Airport Pickup

If you have booked accommodation with EC you must arrive at the airport between 08:00 and 20:00. Late/early arrivals may be asked to book alternative accommodation.
You will meet an EC transportation representative holding an EC Montreal welcome sign after you exit through the glass doors after customs/ immigration.
If after 10 minutes you cannot see the EC representative, just call +1 514 947 1030 (from the information desk or a mobile phone).
If your flight is missed, delayed, or cancelled, or if there is any other problem, you should notify EC by calling +1 514 947 1030 (from the information desk or a mobile phone) to rearrange your transfer time and avoid additional cost. 

Other ways to get to your residence

Taxi or an Uber.
There is also a regular bus ( #747) that stops at  metro station Lionel Groulx and from there the student can purchase a metro pass to go McGill station and walk to La Marq.
It is reccomended not to take the bus from the airport because it could be complicated to carry all the luggage as there are no elevators in most metro stations.
