Information Tools... Simply Mobile!
The STO offers a number of information tools on your mobile device.
These tools have been developed to ensure you can always have the latest information, especially when you are on the go.
Transit App in Real Time

[Translate to Anglais:] Astuce!
Comme les textos ou SMS sont de courts textes (limités en nombre de caractères), il est commun d’abréger certains mots pour maximiser le message.
Ainsi Taux stand. appl. veut dire Taux standards applicables et Txt veut dire Textez.
The STO's mobile site and text messages are FREE information tools!
These new information tools offered by the STO are free. However, standard rates may apply depending on your text messaging or Internet plans. We therefore recommend that you check with your cell phone provider to determine these details.
