Where is the venue

RoCoCo 2010 / RecentChangesCamp 2010 Montreal will be held at the Comité Social Centre Sud (CSCS), located at 1710 Beaudry, near Metro Beaudry.

How to get there from the Airport

Montreal's Pierre Elliott Trudeau Airport [1] (formerly Dorval Airport) is west of the city center on highway 20. Note that travel time to the airport from the city center can be as much as an hour, depending on traffic. The taxi fare to and from downtown is a fixed price of $38 (a sticker on the window behind the driver gives the boundaries of the zone where the flat fare applies; for origins and destinations outside this zone, you will have to pay a metered fare).

STM Airport Express bus 747 [2] offers 24 hour service between the airport and downtown Montreal. A single fare will cost $7 including unlimited use of the STM bus and metro network for the following 24 hours. It will call at Lionel-Groux métro and a number of downtown stops.

Alternatively, public bus number 204 (STM [3]) leaves from outside arrivals every half hour to Gare Dorval (Dorval train station - check with the driver which direction he is going in, as both bus routes stop at the same place and make sure to ask for a transfer as you will need it later). From Dorval, you can use your transfer ticket to catch bus number 211 or express bus number 221 to the Lionel-Groulx métro. Make sure it is going east as the same routes go west too. Your transfer will then let you into the métro. This costs only $2.75, but exact change must be provided to the first driver.

Another option is to take the VIA Rail AirConnect [4] service from the airport terminal to downtown by shuttle and train. This service runs infrequently, but costs only $11. The same trip can be made on the AMT [5] commuter train for $4.25 from Dorval Station. The public bus ($2.75) from the airport arrives here for busses to the nearest metro station as well.

How to get to the venue

The closest Metro is Metro Beaudry.

Où se loger / Where to stay

Many people are expected to come from out of the area. If you are interested in trying to get a group discount on room or find a local to stay with, please comment on the talk page. People who have attended RoCoCo in the past know of a few places where we might get such a discount but the leadership team needs a commitment from people before we lock in a set of rooms.
