Getting to PTE
Prairie Theatre Exchange is located on the third floor of Portage Place Shopping Centre, 393 Portage Avenue. We're across the street from The Bay Downtown.
There is a locked cage for you bicycle in the Portage Place parkade, next to the Security booth at the Carlton Street entrance.
You'll find convenient, heated underground parking in the Portage Place parkade, accessible by car 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
There is a convenient drop-off/pick-up point for taxis, Transit Plus, and private vehicles at the back of the mall, an entrance that faces onto The Promendae, a one-way road that runs from Vaughan Street to Ellice Avenue. That entrance brings you directly to the Clock Tower courtyard, where you'll find the elevators and escalators that service the third floor.
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 A, near the Carlton entrance of hte parkade, 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: Elevator C will take you to offices on the third & fourth floors - there is no access to PTE from that side.
