Nonprofit organization Kéroul is dedicated to making travel more accessible to people with limited mobility. Its excellent guide The Accessible Road (www.larouteaccessible.com) covers Montréal, Québec City and 15 other tourism areas in Québec, highlighting access facilities in each.
Watch for the Tourist & Leisure Companion Sticker, which indicates free access to facilities for those traveling with people with a disability or mental illness. The website www.vatl.org has a full list of participating sites throughout Québec.
In Montréal, most public buildings – including tourist offices, major museums and attractions – are wheelchair accessible, and many restaurants and hotels also have facilities for the mobility-impaired. Almost all major bus routes are serviced by NOVA LFS buses adapted for wheelchairs, and eight metro stations on the Orange Line have elevators, making them accessible to manual and motorized wheelchairs with a maximum length of 46" and a maximum width of 26". Visit www.stm.info/en/access for information about boarding procedures on both the metro and the adapted buses.
In Québec City, bus lines 21, 800, 801, 802 and 803 are wheelchair accessible. The 'Accessibility' section of the www.rtcquebec.ca website has more details.
Access to Travel (www.accesstotravel.gc.ca) provides details of accessible transportation across Canada.
Transport Adapté du Québec Métro Inc Has 20 wheelchair-adapted minibuses that carry passengers to sections of Québec City not served by the public RTC buses. You must make reservations at least eight hours in advance of your trip.
