Ottawa Macdonald-Cartier International Airport is six miles from downtown Ottawa. The airport has a single terminal with three levels:
The OC Transpo Route 97 offers express service between the airport and downtown Ottawa. The bus stops at major hubs around the city, including bus stations and the O-Train. Bus tickets are available at the ground transportation desk near the central door of the Level 1 arrivals area. Bus run every 10-30 minutes, 24 hours daily; the journey takes approximately half an hour.
Location: Main Terminal, before security, arrivals, level 1, pillars 13-16
Cost: CAD 3.65
Licensed taxi vehicles pick up passengers from level 1, arrivals and drop-off passengers at level 3, departures.
Location: Main Terminal, before security, arrivals, level 1, the queue forms outside the centre door
Cost: approximately CAD 29 to downtown Ottawa
If you are traveling to the US, do your eating and drinking as well as your shopping before security. Options afterwards are very, very limited.
Walking over to the car park and rental car building on the arrivals level takes you outside. Especially in the fierce winter time or when it is pouring rain, use the covered walkway on the second floor/departures level. Simply take the lift upstairs at either end of the arrivals hall, walk across the street nice and warm and take the lift down to the rental car level.
Get yourself tuned in for your trip with an authentic Italian espresso. The Local also offers local patries and local ale as well as other snacks and non-alcoholic beverages.
