The Conseil intermunicipal de transport Le Richelain (CIT Le Richelain) was the public transportation system in the municipalities of Candiac, La Prairie, and St-Philippe-de-La-Prairie. It was operated under contract by Autobus La Québécoise Roussillon (a subsidiary of Groupe Swiftrans).

History

The Conseil intermunicipal de transport Le Richelain (CIT Le Richelain) was created in 1984 alongside the other municipal transit councils (CITs) which were tasked with providing public transportation in the municipalities surrounding the Greater Montreal area. The Le Richelain name comes from the demonym for a resident of the Richelieu River valley.

The original municipality members of the CIT Le Richelain were La Prairie, Candiac, Saint-Jean-sur-Richelieu, Saint-Luc, and L'Acadie. In 1997, the CIT Le Richelain consited of the members: Candiac, La Prairie, and L'Acadie. Saint-Jean-sur-Richelieu had formed its own transit system. St-Philippe-de-La-Prairie was added to the CIT in 1999. L'Acadie was no longer a part of the CIT by 2003, after merging with Saint-Jean-sur-Richelieu the year prior.

The CIT Le Richelain first contracted operations to the Société de transport de la Rive-Sud de Montréal (STRSM). In 1991, a new contract was signed with private coach operator La Québécoise.

CIT Le Richelain reviewed its services with Gestrans in 2014, with a totally revised network, free-fare local circuits, extended service hours and new stops.[1]

New legislation reorganizing public transit in the greater Montréal area came into effect on June 1, 2017, which replaced AMT with RTM. As part of the reorganization, CIT Le Richelain was replaced by exo Le Richelain.
