Customer service

 

Taxibus

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

Step 1: Registration for lines T-30, T-80 and T-81
Register free of charge by reporting to the service centre of the Vallée du Richelieu sector. When you sign up, you will be given an OPUS card registered to your name.

To sign up for lines T-61 and T-62, fill out the form to that effect, which is available either from Saint-Hyacinthe city hall, at 700 av. de l’Hôtel-de-Ville, or online

Step 2: Reservations
You must reserve your trip through the service centre of the Vallée du Richelieu sector by 12 (noon) the day before. If these are regular commutes (at the same time and day), you may reserve several trips at once. No service is provided on statutory holidays. On each reservation, please enter the following:

  • Your name
  • Your OPUS card number
  • The date and time you have chosen from the schedule

To cancel or change a reservation, contact the service centre of the Vallée du Richelieu sector at least an hour ahead of time. If you forget or show up late, a five-dollar ($5) penalty will be applied to your next commute.
