Travelling with young children
When travelling with young children, plan ahead to ensure a safe and pleasant trip.
In the métro
- Don't cross the round, coloured tiles, the orange line, or the yellow textured edge tiles until the train comes to a full stop
- Allow other passengers to exit the train before boarding
- Have your children board the métro car one at a time, without shoving
- Ask your children to hold on to a support pole if there are no available seats. Don't let them sit on the floor.
- Prepare your children to disembark one stop ahead of time
On the bus
- While waiting for the bus, stand away from the curb
- On the bus, ask your children to hold on to a support pole if there are no available seats. Don't let them sit on the floor
- Remind them to NEVER put their head or limbs outside the windows
Travelling with a stroller
Plan your trip ahead of time
- On the bus or in the métro, use an umbrella stroller. Lightweight and practical, they take up little room and are easy to fold and unfold with one hand
- You might also consider other options such as baby carriers
- A small backpack used as a diaper bag can simplify your journey
- Check schedules for lines served by low-floor buses (see Using public transit in a wheelchair)
- Avoid rush hours by travelling between 9 a.m. and 3 p.m.
In the métro
- At turnstyles, use the gates reserved for wheelchairs and strollers
- Seven métro stations on the orange line are accessible by elevator
On the bus
- Aboard low-floor buses, you have priority access to the reserved area if it is not already occupied by someone in a wheelchair
- You must always board the bus via the front door, but we suggest you exit via the back door.
