What is the Rapibus corridor?
The Rapibus is part of the system operated by the Société de transport de l'Outaouais (STO). Unique in Quebec, it is a bus rapid transit (BRT) system built along the existing railway right-of-way.
It is a two-way corridor more than 12 km long that is reserved exclusively for buses. It links Labrosse and Alexandre-Taché boulevards and provides service to the downtown areas of the Hull sector and Ottawa along reserved lanes.
Ten stations along the corridor offer numerous amenities.
Park-and-ride lots and bicycle paths
- A system with high-frequency routes along a corridor.
- Higher capacity, quieter and cleaner articulated buses, combined with regular buses.
- Local routes serving various areas of interest in a neighbourhood and converging at a terminus, such as a Rapibus station or a park-and-ride.
- Easy access to the main business, academic, recreational and commercial centres.
The Rapibus is part of a new public transit system that takes the needs of the entire community into account. It is a new way of travelling, for a future… together!
