Changes for routes 62-65-76 Share your view by March 1
The expansion of Hôpital de Gatineau and the addition of a faculty of medicine and a university family medicine group will result in more people traveling to and from this area.
Changes are being proposed to routes 62, 65 and 76 to:
- improve services to Hôpital de Gatineau and nearby health care facilities;
- enhance the services offered by adding trips;
- promote mobility by offering STO bus services along arteries where there currently are none;
- create a new link to De la Cité station;
- offer a service running in the opposite direction of the main traff, between the two Cégep de l'Outaouais campuses; and
- facilitate access to the Gréber industrial park and other nearby businesses.
These service changes will come into effect in the fall of 2020.
Details of the proposed changes
- A new link to De la Cité station via montée Paiement instead of Davidson and Nobert (currently route 71).
- A new service for boulevard St-René and Nelligan, d'Orléans, du Barry, Pierre-Lafontaine and de Sillery (currently route 65).
