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
Aboard the bus
The driver can lower the front of the bus to sidewalk level. Do not hesitate to make such a request. Boarding or exiting the bus will be so much easier for you!
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
- 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.
