Laurentides

As of June 1, 2017, this sector of the Réseau de transport métropolitain (RTM) corresponds to the territory previously served by the CIT Laurentides. Regular transport and paratransit services, transit passes, fares, schedules and other policies will remain the same until further notice.

 

Taxibus

In order to provide better service to low-density residential areas, a taxibus service (booked in advance) is available for certain sectors.

To reserve or modify your commute, you must call at least one hour in advance (two hours for travel in Saint-Benoît or Saint-Hermas), by calling the taxi company that provides the service on the line you wish to use. Note that such commuting is only permitted between different sectors (it is not permitted within a single sector).

Routes and reservations: When booking your reservation, you will have to provide the following information:

  • Your name and telephone number
  • The numbers of the pick-up and drop-off stops
  • The time of departure or arrival at destination
  • Your mode of payment (OPUS card or cash)
  • Your OPUS card number if you will be paying for the trip with it (Make sure the card is valid).

The dispatcher will confirm the time at which you will be picked up at your stop. Make sure you are at the stop five minutes early. If you are absent at pick-up time and have not given sufficient advance notice, you become liable for a $25 fine.

Saturday service on statutory holidays. The taxibus driver can give you a transfer, which you can then use to get on a bus, just as you can use a transfer from a bus to get on the taxibus. When you board, you will have to either:

  • Pay the taxi driver the exact amount of the fare in cash, or
  • Hand over a valid transfer, or
  • Present your OPUS card or any other valid transit pass issued and approved by the Réseau de transport métropolitain Laurentides (note that "six-trip" cards are not accepted).

Fares: Using the taxibus costs the same as the regular bus service. To determine the fare, refer to the fares page. View the list of stops on the line to find out what metropolitan zone is assigned to each of the stops. The following transit passes can be used to pay for trips by taxibus (note that "six-trip" cards are not accepted):

  • Payment in cash
  • Passe-Temps
  • Passe-Atout
  • Passe-Soleil
  • RTM Laurentides monthly pass
  • Monthly RTM pass.

At all times, RTM Laurentides reserves the right to verify that you possess a valid transit fare while travelling. In the case of an OPUS card loaded with a fare, this verification may be done remotely. If you use the taxibus service without a valid transit fare, you may have your service suspended and become liable for a $25 fine.
