Directions to go to the apartment:
From the airport take the shuttle (bus 747): it's 10$ but then it gives you access to all public transport in Montreal during 24 hours.
Take the shuttle until the end. You'll arrive at the bus station from Berri uqam.
From there I suggest you to take the bus 125 at the corner of Berri and Ontario street. Just in front of the bus station. It's a 20 minutes bus ride and you arrive at the corner of ontario and bennet (bus stop: william david )which is my street. There are buses every 20 minutes.
You can although take the metro there at station Berri uqam. From there, you'll have to take the green line of the subway (direction Honore Beaugrand) until station Pie IX. Then you can walk (around 15-20'). Or take the bus on Pie IX (139) street until street Adam. Then you'll have 5 minutes of walk on Adam until Bennet. Then it's right side: 1472 Bennett.
If it's not too cold. I'll suggest you to rent a bixi bike (for 7$ a day or 15$ for 3 day) you can bike with all around the city. Then you'll be 15' from downtown from my place. There is a the bicycle way that pass in front of my apartment and that goes along the river st laurent. I really love to take it to go downtown, especially in the old part of the city.
