Special Routes for High Schools

Every year, the Société de transport de l'Outaouais (STO) makes agreements with academic institutions to provide specific services for eligible students in order to take them to these schools. It is up to each academic institution to indicate which students are eligible. These students then receive a Multi pass that is valid on school days only.

Commission scolaire des Portages de l'Outaouais (CSPO) students – New!

This year, a new agreement has been signed between the Commission scolaire des Portages-de-l'Outaouais (CSPO) and the STO and changes have been made for the 2017-2018 school year. The agreement now states that the passes given to students who are eligible for transportation will be valid on school days until 5 p.m.

Students who wish to get a transit pass that is valid outside school hours

the ZAP pass, which all students residing in Gatineau can use and purchase, including those who are not eligible for school transportation. ZAP will be valid during the following times:

  • School days after 5 p.m.;
  • Weekends;
  • Professional development (PD) days;
  • Statutory holidays;
  • Christmas holiday period;
  • Spring break.

ZAP costs $180 and is valid from September 1, 2017, to June 30, 2018. All students, whether they walk or take the bus, can purchase the pass when registration starts, which will take place in each high school before school starts on August 31, 2017. In addition, ZAP is also available at all STO service points until the offer ends on September 30, 2017.

 Note that students wishing to get a ZAP for a one-month period only can also do so for $21 per month.

The STO encourages you to take the special routes dedicated to your high school which allow you to embark and disembark on school premises or nearby. You can also access the STO'S regular system. For detailed schedules, consult the Plani-Bus.

If your school is not on the list, you can buy a bus pass at a special rate:

  • You can buy a student monthly pass to travel on the STO's system at any time during an entire month.
  • If you are between 12 and 16 years old, the ZAP is for you.
  • To travel freely throughout the summer, get a summer pass and travel wherever you want on the STO's system in July and August.
