    PROGRAM ELIGIBILITY REQUIREMENTS

    Are you planning a field trip with a group of school children and would like bus transportation?

    First, check if you meet with eligibility requirements for the school transport program:

    REQUESTS WILL BE ACCEPTED STARTING AUGUST 15, 2017

    • This service is offered exclusively to elementary and high schools located on the island of Montréal.
    • The service is available on weekdays, from after Labour Day to June 22, except on legal holidays and professional development days.
    • Field trip groups must consist of a minimum of 40 children (17 years old and under) and a maximum of 120 passengers (children and adults).
    • Departures are from 9 a.m. and your return at school no later than 2:30 p.m.
    • The points of departure and destination must be located within the area covered by the island of Montréal (including Île Sainte-Hélène, Île Notre-Dame, Nuns’ Island and Île-Bizard) and be over 1km from each other.
    • If the points of departure and destination are both less than 1 km from a métro station, you are invited to use the métro system for your group’s trip.
    • In order to make this service available throughout the area, the STM could set a maximum number of trips per school.

    If you meet each of the above criteria, you may send in a request for bus transportation by filling out the form on the next page.
    You are not eligible to the program, but still want to use STM services?

    These are your options:

    • You can lease an STM bus by calling 514 280-5327.
    • You can use the STM bus and métro system. To ensure you have a safe and efficient ride, we suggest you follow these guidelines:
      • Purchase your transit fares in advance.
      • If your group is larger than 25 children, divide them into smaller groups or, if that’s not possible, notify the STM at least 24 hours prior to your field trip by calling 514 280-5005.
      • Plan your transportation during off-peak periods preferably (between 9 a.m. and 3 p.m.)
      • Use the métro and bus lines offering frequent service whenever possible.
