Montrealers! Is there a shuttle service from airport to Sherbrooke???

My daughter will be flying into Montreal (PE Trudeau airport) and needs an affordable way to get to Sherbrooke. Is there a shuttle service or what are her alternatives?

Thanks in advance for your help.

I think you'll find she needs to take the Aerobus from the airport to Montreal Central Bus station, and then the Transdev Limocar intercity bus to Sherbrooke. Since it is over 2 hours to Sherbrooke, calling it a shuttle service is a bit of a misnomer. The Limocar webpage is https://www.transdev.ca/home-en/

To my knowledge also, Limocar to Sherbrooke from Montreal Central Station is the only way (after having taking Aerobus from Dorval). It's not a shuttle as Ron said, but rather a Greyhound-like intercity bus service for passengers travelling between the two cities... luckily it's fairly frequent as you'll see on the website (roughly one an hour for most of the day). I've taken Limocar before and in my experience have found the service reliable and the seats reasonably comfortable (a step up from Greyhound).

Best wishes, Dan

Thanks Dan! Her flight arrives at 4:30 pm into YUL. Will she have time to catch the 5:30 Limocar from the Montreal bus station? She will take the airport shuttle after her flight to the bus station to connect with the Limocar to Sherbrooke.

She will have luggage to haul.

If I had to guess, I would say she would miss the 5:30... time to collect her luggage, figure out where the bus leaves, wait for the bus, the bus hitting traffic going from Dorval to Downtown Montreal...I wouldn't even hope for that bus. Those buses leave on time too. I suspect the 6:30 out of Montreal is likely what she would be on.
