Key Contract Expansion in Montreal

Transdev Canada recently executed a major expansion in our St-Philippe division in Montreal, which has provided bus service to Roussillon for several years. In January 2019, the company began providing service to Le Richelain, after winning a competitive bid to manage a new contract for EXO. This expansion added 1.5 million trips per year to our responsibilities, primarily to downtown and Longueuil. We expanded from 40 drivers to 110 and from 36 vehicles to 78. We are proud of our performance in this greatly expanded contract.

New app in Saint-Jean-sur-Richelieu

In 2017, in our Saint-Jean-sur-Richelieu contract, we worked with our client and launched a passenger app that provides travelers with real-time bus arrival information and shows the location of their bus on a map. It has proven very popular with riders.

School Buses

For children and parents around the world, their school day begins with a great bus ride with a caring bus driver, who takes them to school and back safely and efficiently.

At Transdev, we are proud of the trust communities and school districts, across Canada, place on us to deliver safe, reliable and quality student transportation.

School services are a specific and crucially important activity for the mobility of the youngest citizens in a region. Every day, we transport more than 9,000 school children and students to their schools, middle schools or high schools. Well aware of our responsibility, we also ensure the optimization of school routes, information management, the driver-student relationship, the safety around and on board the buses and the quality of the bus stops in rural areas. We want to give children a positive first experience of public transport, in order to ensure that they continue to use public transport in the future.
