Forfait CamPuce

An exclusive offer for UQO students, CamPuce is a promotion that offers four months for the price of three.

  • Starting in September 2006, a pilot project with the Université du Québec en Outaouais was introduced in order to encourage students to use transit. Previously starting at $51 per semester (regular network), the cost jumped to $57 in January 2007 and $107 in September 2007 due to a lesser contribution by the city of Gatineau on the project. In 2008, the cost jump was even higher and is $213 per semester as of 2008. Costs for the express network is $259.50 per semester and $307.50 for the interzone network.

CamPuce fares on January 1, 2009 for UQO students : $128.00 (regular), $174.50 (express) & $216,50 (interzone).
