More information on train timetables can be found here. If you travel to Brussels South Charleroi airport (CRL), you will need to take a bus shuttle to Charleroi-Sud railway station and then a train to Mons. More information here.
Taxis are available in front of the station in Mons although it is at walking distance form most hotels (except the Best Western Casteau Resort).
