117. The Authority must offer bus transportation services and paratransit services to every local municipality whose territory is not included in its area of jurisdiction and which, on 31 May 2017, was a party to an agreement with another municipality for the establishment of an intermunicipal board of transport under section 2 of the Act respecting intermunicipal boards of transport in the area of Montréal (chapter C‑60.1) or for the provision of paratransit services in its territory. It must also offer such services to every regional county municipality which, on that date, is a party to an agreement for the establishment of a regional public transport board under section 18.13 of that Act.
The amount required by the Authority for the provision of such services must be equitable for the municipality given the costs of the agreements the Authority enters into under section 8.
Local municipalities that were a party to an agreement referred to in the first paragraph may enter into an agreement by which they agree to divide among themselves, according to the formula and on the conditions stipulated in the agreement, the total amount of the contributions required from them for the financing of the services provided for in the first paragraph. The same applies to regional county municipalities that were a party to an agreement for the establishment of a regional public transport board.
The obligation imposed on the Authority under the first paragraph ceases on a decision by the municipality to organize its own public transportation services.
