The Conseil intermunicipal de transport de Sorel-Varennes (CITSV) was a public transit board that provided service to the municipalities of Contrecoeur, Saint-Amable Saint-Amable, Saint-Joseph-de-Sorel, Sorel-Tracy, Varennes, and Verchères. CITSV had been operated by the public transit division of Le Groupe Transbus. The board folded in 2017 and was replaced by exo Sorel-Varennes.

History

Autobus La Québécoise was awarded the contract to operate CIT Sorel-Varennes in 1992. Ville de Saint Amable service was taken over by CIT Sorel-Varennes in 1998.

In November 2011, Le Groupe Transbus was awarded the operating contract effective January 1, 2012. Transbus had submitted the lowest bid compared to Veolia Transdev, Orléans Urbain, and La Québécoise.[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, CITSV was replaced by exo Sorel-Varennes.
