McTavish Street is a street in Montreal, Quebec, Canada. This street runs up the slope of Mount Royal, from Sherbrooke Street at its southern end, to Pine Avenue. Adjacent to the main campus of McGill University, as of May 28, 2010 the lower half of the street is a car-free zone.[1]

Plans call for the greening of the street with additional shrubs and trees. The pedestrianization of McTavish is part of a city-wide plan as well as the university's "Greening the Lower Campus" initiative.[2][3]
