Families and visitors must follow the signage for Shriners Hospitals for Children – Canada all the way to P3A 140, where they will find the parking entrance directly into level SS2 of the hospital.
Important, families must bring their parking tickets with them to the front desk. Once in the hospital through the SS2 doors, please take the elevators that you will find in the Museum to RC.
There is a taxi pick-up area on the West side of the Glen Site (near Canada Shriners Hospital and Decarie Blvd).
Since March 21, 2015, the Quebec Transport Ministry has closed a section of Saint - Jacques Street until the fall 2017 in order to proceed with the demolition and the reconstruction of the Saint-Jacques Bridge. Patients, visitors and staff should consider these changes to traffic in their access to the Glen site. Make sure you understand the detours before coming to the Hospital. We will post updates and advisories on a regular basis.
Since June 18th 2015, the underground tunnel between the MUHC Glen Site and the intermodal Vendôme Station is open, offering patients, visitors and staff a faster and safer access to the hospital. The tunnel is 35 meters long and opens on the train platform side of the station, passes under the train tracks and leads pedestrians on the side of the Glen Site, then to the hospital main entrance.
Since 5000 travelers will use the tunnel on a daily basis, the STM has added more staircases, rearranged ticket counters and enlarged current hallways.
From the Glen Site side, the tunnel is equipped with an elevator for reduced mobility travelers; however on the STM and AMT side, it is only accessible by stairs. The plan for the “Programme d’infrastructures du Québec 2012-2014” does foresee the addition of a second entrance, which will provide a universal access by elevators to all train and metro travelers, including staff, patients and visitors of the Glen Site.
There are 9 STM buses that stop at the Vendôme Station (17, 37, 90, 102, 104, 105, 125, 371) and 3 other buses do frequent stops near the Glen Site (78, 24, 63).
New bus line: 77 - Lionel-Groulx Station / MUHC
Starting May 11th 2015, a brand new bus line will service the Glen Site of the MUHC! It will allow a much easier access to the Glen Site, in particular, for limited mobility travelers.
The Vendôme Station is an intermodal station which also links to the metro network to three different commuter train lines of the AMT: Saint-Jérôme, Candiac and Vaudreuil-Hudson.
Pedestrians can access the Glen Site by using the main entrance pathway off of Decarie Blvd (Canada Shriners Hospital side). For bikers there are reserved bike paths all around the Glen Site that are also linked to the Decarie and de Maisonneuve Blvd bike paths. On site, there are 330 bike racks both inside the employee parking and outside, around the site.
