Information required to make a reservation

  • The user's record number
  • Exact origin and destination, with boarding and drop-off points
    For commonly visited public location, the STM determines boarding and drop-off points.
  • Desired arrival and return times
    You must also know the opening and closing times of your destination.
  • Mobility aids used during trips
    For example, walker, service dog
  • Presence of a companion
    Including their mobility aids or additional space requirements.
  • The reason for the trip
    For example, work, class, recreation, workshop
    This information helps to determine the priority of the trip should an extraordinary
    event forces the STM to cancel trips.

Reserving an occasional trip

You can make a reservation within seven days of the date of the trip.

All requests for transportation within the STM service area for the following day
will be granted.

Requests made for transportation on the same day will be processed depending on available resources and may be refused.

Our reservation service always tries to accommodate customers calling for a new same-day booking request. We understand that it is entirely normal to want to travel spontaneously. However, when new bookings cause delays to planned travel, or if the resources are no longer available, we must decline the request.

Same-day changes to the return time

Did you know that almost 7% of trips that we carry out daily were granted on the same day? Of these, approximately one-third are related to medical travel or Municipal Court returns for which the return time could not be honoured for reasons beyond the customer’s control. These situations are unpredictable, and the customer can change their return time to return home. No change has been made to this practise.

New same-day travel requests

Same-day travel requests are granted when they can be combined with the cancellation of another customer on that same day. However, when delays already exist, adding customers on the same day causes extra pressure to schedules, resulting in further delays in overall travel.

We can accept new same-day request, as long as they do not affect customers who have already booked the previous day.

On occasion, we plan over 10,000 trips in a single day. This is a complex task for which the safety and experience of our customers is central to our concerns, for we are committed to providing you with the best possible service.

Precautionary measures are not intended to limit the rights of our customers to travel but are implemented taking into account the volume of travel already reserved (in order to honour them), the anticipation of longer trips, a number of cancellations by our customers and the number of cars we will have available during peak demand. Despite all these measures, longer trips and more frequent and longer delays must also be expected.

We would like to remind you that the best way to travel is to book your travel in advance, before 9 p.m. the previous day, and even a day earlier when bad winter weather conditions occur :

Also, during bad weather conditions, if your trip can be moved to another day or if your boarding or landing location has not been cleared of the snow, we ask that you call us to cancel as soon as possible. This benefits everyone, especially customers who have no choice but to travel despite the storm.
