The bus provides personalized transport between all downtown McGill buildings except the Solin Hall residence.

To use this bus, you must provide medical documentation outlining your injury or disability.


Students should contact the Office for Students with Disabilities at 514-398-6009 to apply.


Staff members must fax Pensions, Benefits, and Payroll at (514) 398-6889 or email their request to sharron [dot] smith [at] mcgill [dot] ca (Sharron Smith).

In Montreal

Montreal’s public transport network includes an adapted transport service called Paratransit. Wheelchair-friendly buses are available as well, and some Métro stations are accessible to wheelchair users. For specific information, visit the Société de transport de Montréal website or phone 514-280-8211.

Students who are eligible for the STM Adapted Transport Service should register to receive service to and from the downtown campus. In order to be eligible for a reduced student rate on public transport you must be registered as a full time student. However, if you are taking a reduced course load for reasons related to your disability, OSD will write you a letter to take to your transport company (including the IS card requested by Via Rail) confirming that you should be considered for eligibility as if you were a full time student.
