Montreal to Quebec City

Hi there,

My friends and I are planning a return trip from Montreal to QC and can't decide on the best mode of transport out of hire car, bus or train. Any tips?

We're staying in downtown Montreal and plan to stay in a central part of QC for one night. We want to go with the cheapest option as long as whatever mode of transport we choose is convenient and relatively comfortable too.

Penny.

Don't need a car when in QC. Bus or train best option,

Right now VIA rail has a 50% sale on.

Train (VIA Rail as mentionned above) is the most comfortable option and comes to the same price as the bus if bought in advance.

Is price is the main factor, hiring a car might be slightly cheaper however, keep in mind you will probably need to pay +/- $30 for parking in Quebec City.

Intercity bus is very convenient, with its hourly departures from both cities until 10:30PM (way more than the train). Safe, comfy, free wi-fi.

Coming by bus or by train, remember you get off at the SECOND stop in Québec City, at 'Gare du Palais' http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gare_du_Palais

Thanks to all of you for your advice! I think we'll catch the train and although it doesn't run as regularly as the bus, it departs at times that suit us. Thanks also for the head's up about the sale on train fares too :)

You could always do the train out since it leaves at a reasonable time, and then the bus back, since the last train leaves around 5:30 which is too early :)
