Cessez de chercher un stationnement et montez à bord! Destination : Festival de montgolfières de Gatineau

Once again this year, the Société de transport de l'Outaouais (STO) is pleased to join forces with the Gatineau Hot Air Balloon Festival. In concrete terms, this partnership means:

  • A free shuttle service to La Baie Park from Thursday, September 1, to Monday, September 5, providing direct access to the event site;
  • Free trips on the STO's regular buses and paratransit for riders who have a festival wrist pass, starting at 4 p.m. on Thursday, September 1, until 10 p.m. on Monday, September 5.

To provide easier access for people with reduced mobility, low-floor buses will be used for the shuttle service. For more information on the different boarding locations and the shuttle schedule, festival visitors are invited to check
