Getting Around Montreal

Thanks to support from the Conseil des Arts de Montréal (C.A.M.), all PACTcon registrants (except those on the Local Learning Pass) can receive an STM transit pass good for three calendar days at the registration table. We suggest using this pass for eco-responsible travel to and from the Segal Centre for Performing Arts on the Thursday, Friday, and Saturday of the conference.

Wednesday, May 29

If you'd like to walk in a group to your Region or Caucus meeting location at Black Theatre Workshop or Centaur Theatre, meet PACT staff at Hotel ZERO1 approximately half an hour before the meeting start time.

The pedestrian directions below follow the local convention that, in downtown Montreal, “north” is northwest towards Mount Royal and “south” is southeast towards the river. Click the link to open a map.
