What do I need to know when traveling with Maritime Bus?

ALL PASSENGERS TRAVELING BETWEEN RIVIERE DU LOUP AND MONTREAL AND THE REVERSE THEREOF NEED TO HAVE A PAPER TICKET.  YOU MUST VISIT THE TICKET COUNTER IN MONTREAL AND HAVE YOUR TICKETS PRINTED ON ORLEANS EXPRESS TICKET PAPER. IF THIS IS NOT DONE YOU CAN NOT BE GUARANTEED A SEAT.

How Early Should I Arrive Before Departing?

Maritime Bus encourages passengers to arrive early to your stop location when traveling.  For passengers with pre-purchased tickets, we recommend 10-15 minutes.  For those passengers who do not have tickets purchased, Maritime Bus recommends arrival to your stop location at least 30 minutes before the scheduled departure time. Arriving early will allow you to check in, get any last minute questions or concerns that you may have answered, and to ensure that your checked luggage has the appropriate tags.  Arriving early also helps Maritime Bus Drivers too, helping to ensure your stress free trip continues on time!
