Visit, transportation, accessibility

Squeaky Wheel is located in the Tri-Main Center on 2495 Main Street, Suite 310. You can enter the Tri-Main Center from its main entrance on Halbert Street, parallel to Main Street. We are located in Suite 310, which you can find by taking the elevator in the lobby to the 3rd floor and walking left and following the signage on the walls. 

Parking is available for visitors across from the Halbert Street entrance. The Tri-Main Center can be reached by taking the #8 bus, the Filmore-Hertel Bus, #23 Fillmore-Hertel bus, or via rail to the Amherst Station.

The Tri-Main Center has automated doors and lever handles. There is a dedicated lift for wheelchair users on the left when you enter, so you may avoid the stairs and continue to the elevator.

Right outside of Squeaky Wheel’s suite are gender-segregated restrooms with accessible stalls.

Please see individual program pages for additional access information, including virtual attendance options, ASL interpretation, CART, and more.
