The RTM Vallée du Richelieu sector provides public transit by bus in the cities of Beloeil, McMasterville, Mont-Saint-Hilaire, Otterburn Park, Saint-Basile-le-Grand, Saint-Hyacinthe, Sainte-Madeleine et Sainte-Marie-Madeleine, in addition to serving the cities of Saint-Bruno-de-Montarville and Sainte-Julie.
To serve you better, a taxibus service (booked in advance) is available on reservation. You will need to register for the service in order to be permitted to reserve a taxibus at the stop of your choice. The stop you choose is usually the one closest to your point of departure. The taxibus will arrive there at the time specified, provided it is within the schedule. During such commutes, the taxibus may be boarding other passengers who reserved a commute on the same line, so there is no point in waiting at a stop without a reservation. Any rules regarding passenger conduct on a bus also apply to the taxibus service.
The taxibus routes begin with the letter "T". Check schedules
