The bus depot in Montréal is at Berri UQAM metro station.

Central Station (Via Rail) is at Bonaventure metro station.

How far apart are the two? Can you walk there?

No you cannot walk but you can take the métro (subway), it is only 4 stops away. Not a very long nor expensive cab ride too.. Oh and the bus depot in Montréal is called Gare d'Autocars de Montréal. It serves many companies, not only Greyhound.

If you are in Montreal's central train station why don't you just take the train to Ottawa ? Is this just to save a few dollars ?

The walk really depends on how much time you have. I have walked the distance from the train station in Montreal to the bus station often. It'll take you twenty minutes if you don't dawdle. In winter you can cover nearly the whole distance underground moving through Montreal's "hidden city".

I'd walk it if I had an hour or so!

Although I second Andrew M's point that the train might just be easier, I don't recall there being that big a difference between the train and the bus fare between Montreal and Ottawa.

Whoops... I just googled the map... Google says it's 35 minutes to walk between the two. I guess time flies when you're having fun! Still, a very pleasant walk in the right weather.

Cheers!

Odd ... the google link I provided above says it's a 25 minute walk... which is in line with your earlier comment.

It really is odd... maybe I placed my marker on the map by the rear entrance or something silly like that. Or my pegman walks slower than your pegman!
