Combine Your Modes of Transportation, and Travel Differently!

Taking the bus means getting the better of traffic congestion thanks to the Rapibus corridor and reserved lanes, saving on commuting costs, travelling without hassle and, last but not least, helping the environment!

To help you to “combine modes”, we are suggesting a few options. And why not mix things up depending on your schedule or the weather conditions for the day?

Walk + bus

Whether you are going to your bus stop or have decided to get off the bus a stop early to get some fresh air, walking is a relaxing mode of travel to get to a destination while also staying fit. Add walking to your good habits.

Bike + bus

Always keep your E-wallet loaded on your Multi card close by.  

Check the Bicycle Paths and Bicycle Racks page to find out more about the bicycle path along the Rapibus corridor, the location of bicycle racks, and the features and security measures for cyclists.

Kiss-and-ride

Labrosse, De la Cité and De la Gappe stations have a kiss-and-ride area to allow friends, spouses or family members to stop the car for a few minutes to drop you off. Specific signs identify this location.

Park-and-ride

Symbole du Parc-o-bus

 

Park-and-ride facilities are free parking lots reserved for STO patrons to encourage them to park their vehicles temporarily and continue their travel by bus.

There are near 20 park-and-ride facilities spread out across the STO's system at strategic locations where our buses operate. Some of the free parking lots have bicycle racks, and all of them have the regulatory number of parking spots reserved for persons with a disability.

Take advantage of the park-and-ride to:

  •  Save on the cost of gas and vehicle wear and tear;
  • Avoid the inconvenience of traffic congestion, and the need to look for a parking space or to pay for parking;
  • Help protect the environment by limiting the greenhouse gases (GHG) emitted by your vehicle.

To know which bus routes are close to Park-and-Ride facilities, check Plani-Bus.
