A first for Nuit blanche
The STM is providing transport adapté service!

Montréal, February 22, 2010
The Société de transport de Montréal (STM), once again a partner in the MONTREAL HIGH LIGHTS Festival’s Nuit blanche to be held on the night of February 27-28, is pleased to advise its Transport adapté (TA) clients that it will provide a special night service on this occasion.

This special service will be provided only for the junction points of the various Nuit blanche circuits.

The junction points served by Transport adapté will be:
  • for the Old Port circuit: corner of Saint-Laurent and Bonsecours in Old Montréal
  • for the Plateau Mont-Royal and Mile-End sector: Plateau Mont-Royal’s Maison de la culture
  • for the Quartier des spectacles and Downtown: Complexe Desjardins, corner of Jeanne-Mance and René-Lévesque
  • for the Pôle Maisonneuve: Botanical Garden and the Biodôme

Once they arrive at each of these points, clients will be able to take the shuttles (regular buses with access ramps at the front) to travel from one activity site to another on their chosen circuit. The use of regular buses means that clients must be self-sufficient or accompanied.

Clients are responsible for ensuring that the sites that they plan to visit, on whichever circuit, are accessible.

Except for the Pôle Maisonneuve, for which TA will provide a regular “door-to-door” service, clients will be able to go from one circuit to another using the accessible shuttles. All information on routes, circuits and activities can be found on the MONTREAL HIGH LIGHTS Festival site. To plan their trips efficiently, clients are invited to visit www.montrealenlumiere.com
(Will open in new window)"> www.montrealenlumiere.com

As usual, clients can reserve their transportation to one of the junction points up to three days in advance, and at the latest by 9:30 p.m. on Friday, February 26. As for the return trip, it must be planned to coincide with the end of their route.

Clients will have to present a valid transit fare for their trips on the minibus to their chosen junction point and for their return home.

It should be noted, however, that the shuttle service available to festival-goers for travel between the various sites offering cultural presentations and other activities is provided free by the MONTREAL HIGH LIGHTS Festival thanks to its partnership with the STM.
