Quebec Ship Pier to Montreal transportation

We are two adults and will be arrving via cruise ship to the port in Quebec around the first week of Oct.

-what is a less expensive way to get to Montreal? We think we will stay somewhere near the Amtrak station in Montreal but not sure.

-what is the typical weather for first week in October?

Thanks in advance :)

The cheapest way to go to Montreal is by bus.

lots of departures everyday, no reservations needed. The bus station is close to the cruise pier.

Typical weather is usually pretty sunny and cool around 15 celsius. But first week of october is also pretty unpredictable could be warm near 20 or could be rainy and cloudy around 5. Usually the fall colours are very nice at that time.

The train can sometimes match buses prices if tickets are bought well in advance but there are only a few departures per day. The buses depart every hour, on the half hour, until 10h30 at night. Check www.viarail.ca .

By the way the train station is not Amtrack but Via Rail and the name of the one in downtown Québec City is Gare du Palais and in Montréal Gare Centrale aka Central Station.
