1958 marks the beginning of Laplante Bus Line in the passenger transportation. Mr. Jean-Paul Laplante began with a van, driving students to the Casselman school. A year later, the demand had grown so much, that he had to buy a school bus. With the years, Jean-Paul Laplante continued to expand by purchasing school buses every two or three years. His four sons, Yvon, Marc, Mario and Gilles started working for the company as they came of age. They took over management in 1993. In 1965, Laplante Bus Line became Casselman Bus Line and in 1974 we were incorporated under the name of 417 Bus Line Ltd. In 1972, we began a line run from Casselman to Ottawa with a 14 passenger van. Today, we have eight coaches operating under TEO that transport passengers daily from the villages of Casselman / Alexandria / Finch / Berwick / Crysler / Limoges to Ottawa-Hull. In 1990, 417 Bus Line added their first coach to the fleet. Today we have 23 coaches and mini-coaches. In 2005, the 417 Bus Line Ltd. family which now includes Lalonde Bus Lines, Matte Bus Line, Larocque Bus Line and McHugh Bus Line, has a fleet of 140 units, which include school buses and coaches. We have also acquired two coaches from Autobus Dufresnes with the rights for pick-up in Montreal and also the same rights from Détour Nature.
