Once in Quebec for the festival– public transportation is the most convenient way to get to and from the festival sites and most sites are within walking distance of each other. There are extra busses added to the routes as well as shuttles to and from festival sites. There are car parks available for festival goers driving their own cars, however they fill up quickly and you have to wait in long lines of cars to enter and exit the car park. So, make use of public transport and the shuttles.
