Sherbrooke

Sherbrooke is the largest town in the Eastern Townships of southern Quebec, Canada.

Get in

Limocar offers an intercity bus service from Montreal to Sherbrooke for $33. Autobus La Québécoise offers service between Sherbrooke and Trois-Rivières and Quebec City. Many travellers to Sherbrooke also use a ridesharing service: Kangaride/AmigoExpress and AllôStop both offer rides to/from Montreal for about $10-$20 plus a yearly membership fee of $7.50 for Kangaride (free 6 months trial account for students) or $7 for AllôStop. They also have rides to other major cities in Quebec and beyond and both offer free membership to students.

While there are currently no direct services between Sherbrooke and any US destinations, you may be able to find a ride with one of the above-mentioned ridesharing services.

Get around

The STS , which is local transportation by bus, offers either a one trip 'jeton' that you have to buy beforehand at an authorized dealer for $3.25 giving you one trip with all transfers necessary or, more economically if you travel a lot, a day pass at $9.25 that either gives the right for one or two adults with children (age 12 or less) for a maximum of 6 passenger on one pass or one adult alone. Service for the bus ends at midnight; if you need to get around after that, use a taxi. It is not too expensive--about $30 for one end to the other of the city--but if you need one at night, chances are that you are in downtown. From there to the farthest hotel, it would cost you $15.
