Burlington to Montreal. Car, bus or train


Im interested to visit Montreal for around 3 days. I work in an airline and I can flight to Burlington not to Montreal.

I was thinking in renting a car to go to Montreal but I read that you dont need a car to see the city because there's a great public transportation system.

Do you think that is better to take a bus or a train to Montreal? or rent a car?

Just to clarify, I suspect you're speaking of Burlington Vermont? burlingtonintlairport.com/admin/directions.p…

I don not think you may go from B. to Mtl by train. Google 'bus Burlington - Montreal' and you'll see your options. It takes about 2 hrs by bus. Personnally I would not care renting a car if public transportation was available at destination (as it is in Mtl), but if it is more convenient for you given the circumstances, then go for it. You will not use it in Mtl, and will face solid parking fees ...

Defiantely avoid having a car in Montreal if at all possible. You can get everywhere on the public transit system which is pretty good. Conversely parking is expensive and just plain tricky. I understand that Platsburgh,NY is now trying to positionitself as an entry point to Canada/montreal but dont know what they offer or if bus connections exist.
