The Société de Transport de l'Outaouais provides service to the city of Gatineau as well as the municipalities of Chelsea and Cantley in the MRC des Collines. Connections are made in Downtown Ottawa on Rideau Street.

History

Transit service in Gatineau started in 1895 and was controlled by the Canadian Pacific Railway. CP Rail operated the service until 1926, where it was sold to Canadian International Paper, a subsidiary of Gatineau Power Company. CIP operated the service until November 30h, 1946.

On December 1st, 1946 the Transport Urbain de Hull was formed and operated the service until the 30th of April 1972 where Transport Urbain de Hull was acquired by the Commission de transport de la communauté regionale de l'Outaouais.

The Commission de transport de la communauté regionale de l'Outaouais operated under this name between the 1st of May 1972 and December 31st, 1990 where the name was changed to the name that is known today. With the name change, also came an extension to the service area into Ottawa.
