What happened with Transdev for losing much of is contract ??? 

There have certainly a reason ??

Simply their lack maintenance, staffing problems and complaints. The CIT contracts are rigorous in terms of fines and conditions to respect. Transdev has a history of buses operating in dire states of dis-repair and frequesnt break-downs. Just look at the Twitter feeds for any exo property run by Transdev, especially Laurentides and the amount of cancelled departures due to break-downs, lack of drivers. Not to mention the fact, Paquette won the contract by outbidding Transdev by a huge margin. Here are the bids that were made for the contract.

Transdev is the lowest, with 24.1 M$. Transbus bid was 27.3 M$, Bell Horizon 29.6 M$ and Fleur-de-Lys 30.3 M$. If the bid was not conform, wouldn't the page had stated it?

Not necessarily, there will be a "Conforme" next to the winner only when exo will publish the final information. See here.

Still no news regarding the Sorelsl sector contract.  According a friend from Exo, it will not be trandev but transbus.

Transdev will only do route 700 coach only. The rest of the lines like 709 will be transbus. They won the St amable and Varrenes lots

It has already been confirmed by a higher up at exo on Facebook in various transit groups.


Transdev will operate Route 700 Sorel-Longueuil. They will take over the exo Garage in Sorel from Transbus. The garage belong to exo and not Transbus as many thought.


Transbus will continue to operate the Varennes/St-Amable/Contrecoeur corridor between these areas and Longueuil. It is unclear where Transbus will base their operations from, as the current Varennes garage is not big enough to accommodate the extra buses that will be moving from the Sorel Division.

To make things a bit more clear, here is a (short) timeline of what will happens in the next couple months

April 4th 2022 - STC Pierre de Saurel will lauch it's all day express service between Longueuil and Sorel-Tracy those service will be operated by Fleur de Lys. Also two local routes within Sorel will also start to operate at that date. exo will abolish the 705 Express, put more trips on the 700 and some others schedule change, all exo services will still be operated by Transbus

July 1st 2022 - Transdev will take over Transbus for the operation of the Sorel - Longueuil corridor (route 700). At that date, Transbus will begin it's new contract with exo on the Varennes / St-Amable corridors

I doubt that transdev has the contract for Sorel, for the simple reason that the contract has not yet been concluded and that Exo has a lot of problems with Transdev and Keolis
