In June 2006, the government released the new Québec Policy Respecting Public Transit – Better Choices for Citizens – a policy that is directly in keeping with the implementation of sustainable development through the economic, environmental, and social dimensions of access to and use of public transit.
In the Memphremagog MRC, “Transport des Alentours” offers public transit by offering the empty places in adapted transportation to the general public. To benefit from public transit, one needs to register with “Transport des Alentours” (819 843 3350) and advise 48 hours in advance to use the service.
“Transport des Alentours” comes to Mansonville 3 times a week, It leaves the Town Hall on Monday (10:45 am), Wednesday (8:45 am) and Thursday (9:15 am) for Magog where you may get off at “Les Galeries Orford” or “Le Centre de santé Memphrémagog”. It returns to Mansonville on Monday (12:30 pm), Wednesday (1:45 pm) and Thurday (1:45 pm) from the same locations.
