Getting around with the STM
16 metro stations accessible to all
In the fall of 2020, 16 of Montreal’s 68 metro stations will be wheelchair accessible. And this number is constantly growing.
An accessible station is a subway station with an elevator that allows passengers to reach the subway platform from street level. Please note that no transfers are possible to the yellow line
Some tips for taking the metro in a wheelchair
- Before entering an accessible metro station, take a moment to check the STM website to see if the elevator is actually in operation.
- Most subway stations have multiple entrances, but they are rarely all accessible. Check which station entrance has an elevator.
- Follow the accessibility signs and pictograms to find your way around the stations and determine where to wait on the boarding platform.
- Always carry a cell phone with you so you can reach the STM if need be.
Plan your trip
To complement your public transit travel, consider incorporating bus trips. See the section on network accessibility for more information. To buy a ticket, you can also turn to one of the 44 accessible points of sale as assessed by Kéroul.
