Getting to PTE
Prairie Theatre Exchange is located on the 3rd floor of Portage Place Shopping Centre at 393 Portage Avenue.
NEW: PTE has a new permanent bike rack just inside the lobby doors, available for all performances and any time you visit PTE. It’s advised that you bring a lock, but once the show has started, the lobby doors are locked for security. Note: Elevator 7 (on the other side of the clock tower from the usual elevator) has the most room for a bike to be transported.
You'll find convenient, heated underground parking in the Portage Place parkade, accessible off Vaughan and Carlton Streets.
PTE is centrally-located on bus routes from all areas of the city. Most downtown buses will stop directly in front of the mall, or across the street from it.
By Taxi, Transit Plus or Drop-off
All evening drop-offs must be made on Portage at Edmonton, near the bus stop, as those are the only mall doors that are open after 6 pm.
Reaching PTE on the Third Floor:
Elevators and escalators in the Clock Tower courtyard, near the food court (west end of the mall) are the only way to reach the third floor on PTE's side. Any other elevator only goes to the second floor or to the wrong side of the mall.
In the underground parkade, look for Elevator 6, near the Carlton entrance, to take you directly to the third floor.
If you find yourself in another elevator, simply go to the first or second floor, get off, and walk towards the Clock Tower. NOTE: Elevators 3 & 4 will take you to offices on the third & fourth floors across the mall from PTE - there is no access to PTE from that side.
