It runs every 15 minutes circa, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.  The $8 fare is payable in cash aboard the bus - coins only, bills are not accepted. It also provides travellers with a transit pass valid on the STM bus and metro network for the next 24 hours. At the airport, tickets are sold at the International Currency Exchange (ICE) counter on the international arrivals level.  The airport's information page is here-- The stop for Hilton Bonaventure is the one on Mansfield / Rene-Levesque at the Fairmount Queen Elizabeth / Gare Centrale (central Station) (there’s a marker on the 747 map).  Walk south (down the hill) on Mansfield (cathedral – looks like a small St Peter’s is on the right), the Hilton is at the next intersection, across the street on the left.
