Montréal Museums Day presented by the Board of Montréal Museum Directors and the STM: a match made in heaven!
For Montréal’s Museums Day next May 27, the Société de transport de Montréal (STM) is proud to provide a shuttle bus service, as it has since 1987, for the convenience of visitors. In this way, people taking part in the activity can travel free of charge from one museum to the next amid some thirty participating museums while discovering the abundance of the City’s art and culture.
This year again, the various shuttle routes heading out to participating museums will converge at the heart of the Quartier des spectacles. The main gathering point of the shuttle service, offered for free from 9 a.m. and 4: 30 p.m., is located on the Promenade des artistes, between Saint-Urbain and Jeanne-Mance Streets. A total of 45 shuttle buses will travel along five distinct routes especially designed for the event. The last departure from the Quarter des spectacles to the museums is scheduled for 4:30 p.m.
“The Board of Montréal Museum Directors and the STM share an unbreakable bond in
Montréal Museums Day. For 26 years now, they have been working together to make a success of this tremendous cultural activity. One cannot deny that Museums Day would not be the same without STM’s sponsorship and its bus shuttle service facilitating the access to participating museums and to various activities taking place on Museums Day, “ declared Mr. Michel Labrecque, Chairman of the STM Board of Directors.
“I encourage people to take full advantage of this activity and of the shuttle buses available to them to travel from one museum to another. I am also taking this opportunity to invite all those who will gather at the Quartier des spectacles next Sunday, May 27, to stop by the
Funambus. Recycled from a bus into a promotional and hospitality area, the Funambus
will be stationed on the Promenade des artistes, from 9 a.m. to 4: 30 p.m. , and will feature an exhibit of outdoor activities in Montréal that can be reached in public transit, “ added Mr. Labrecque with the reminder that ”anyone not taking the shuttle buses can still visit most of the participating museums by using the regular bus and métro network upon presentation of a valid transit fare, as many of them are accessible by public transit.“
