Getting There 

Moncton is at the crossroads of several major routes through New Brunswick, including Route 2 (the Trans-Canada Hwy.) and Route 15.

Moncton's small international airport (www.gmia.ca) is about 11km (7 miles, or 10 minutes) from downtown via Route 132; you basically head straight out Main St. and cross the river. (From the airport, take Rue Champlain straight into town.) Air Canada (tel. 888/AIR-CANA [247-2262]; www.aircanada.com) has long served the city, and Canadian carrier WestJet (tel. 888/937-8538; www.westjet.com) now also connects Moncton with Toronto and other points in Canada. From the U.S., Continental (tel. 800/231-0856; www.continental.com) flies to and from Newark daily. At last count, there were four international-chain car rental agencies at the airport.

The VIA Rail (tel. 888/842-7245; www.viarail.com) Ocean train from Montréal to Halifax stops in Moncton 6 days a week. Moncton's station is located on Main Street, next to Highfield Square.

Visitor Information 

There's a downtown visitor information center located centrally in Bore Park, just off Main Street at 10 Bendview Court (tel. 506/853-3540), open daily from mid-May through September. The city's tourism website is located at www.gomoncton.com.
