The call for tenders comes in the wake of Greater Montreal’s Bill 76 legislation, which changes the organization and governance of public transport in the region, transferring AMT’s rights and obligations to contracted organizations that will succeed it.

The agency said that it “is confident that the recently undertaken legislative process to change public transport governance in Greater Montreal will not affect the process for awarding this contract.”
