We offer a free wheelchair loan service. To check availability and take advantage of this service, visit the Info-Rire kiosks, located at the corner of Sainte-Catherine and Jeanne-Mance streets, and at the corner of Maisonneuve and Saint-Urbain streets. Valid identification (driver's license or health insurance card) will be required. Wheelchairs must be returned before the site closes at 11 p.m.
The Place des Arts Esplanade (the area at the top of the stairs) overlooking rue Sainte-Catherine is accessible via boulevard De Maisonneuve, east of rue Jeanne-Mance, towards Salle Wilfrid-Pelletier.
To familiarize yourself with the accessibility of the various venues, please refer to their websites.
A number of facilities have been installed to make it easier for people with reduced mobility to move around the site (wheelchairs, access ramps). Some access points are also indicated on the site map.
The sanitary areas also feature toilets adapted for people with reduced mobility. A specific logo identifies these areas. Adapted toilets are also available in buildings around the site, such as those in the Esplanade Tranquille, Place des Arts and Complexe Desjardins buildings.
