When planning their transportation to these events, transit users should consult their Planibus or Infobus, or call A-U-T O-B-U-S (288-6287) for bus schedules at their stop. For travel directions, please call STM-INFO (786-4636). Timetables adjusted to daily events are now available from the STM website at www.stm.info and can be consulted up to seven days in advance, along with more useful transit information.
