Shared taxi 101

Everyone knows the bus but many people don’t know taxis are also part of Laval’s public transit system. Here’s a primer!

In more industrial or rural sectors, or streets too narrow for buses, shared taxis take up the slack by bringing customers to the nearest bus routes. Like buses, there are taxi routes and stops, and the fare is paid using the OPUS card.

The STL network currently has 18 shared taxi routes. There are two types of shared taxi services:

  • Regular shared taxi, it follows a specific route, makes regular stops and sticks to a schedule, regardless of whether there are customers waiting or not. 
  • On-request shared taxi, where customers need to book a ride for a predetermined time and stop. It’s like an on-request bus. Rides can be booked by phone or online with Taxelco, an STL partner. 

For more details, refer to the shared taxi page.
