Board of Directors
The Société de transport de l'Outaouais (STO) is a public corporation created in accordance with the Act Respecting Public Transit Authorities.
As such, it is represented by a Board of Directors to ensure that its interests and the interests of riders are safeguarded as it strives to carry out its mission. Each member of the Board of Directors serves a maximum term of four years, which can be renewed.
The powers of the Société de transport de l'Outaouais (STO) are exercised by a Board of Directors composed of seven members. Five members are appointed by the City of Gatineau from among its own Council. Two other members – one regular public transit patron and one paratransit patron – are chosen from among city residents.
The Board of Directors convenes at least 10 regular meetings per year. These meetings are public and are announced at least five days in advance in a newspaper distributed throughout the area served by the Société de transport de l'Outaouais (STO).
At these meetings, the members of the Board of Directors make administrative, policy and technical decisions reflecting the best interests of the STO and its patrons. Decisions are made by a majority vote.
Members each have one vote that they must cast on any issues that are put to a vote, unless they are prevented from doing so because of a conflict of interest. The chairperson casts the deciding vote in the case of tie votes.
At the beginning of each meeting, the Board of Directors has a question period during which those present may ask the members questions.
Citizens can attend and ask questions at the start of meetings.
Board of Directors meetings are held in the Board's meeting room located at the STO's administration centre at 111 Jean-Proulx in Gatineau, at 6 p.m. on the following Thursday:
