History


MOBI-O was founded following the elaboration of the Stratégie de gestion des déplacements pour Gatineau et sa région (SGDG) which was realized between the years 2008 and 2010 by the City of Gatineau the Société de Transport de l’Outaouais, Vivre en ville and AECOM.

In fact, the SGDG had then recommended the creation of an organizational structure which specializes in transport management, adapted and specific to the context of Gatineau. The creation of the Transportation Management Center of Gatineau (TMC) was made possible thanks to the financial support of the Ministère du transport du Québec via the Programme d’aide gouvernementale aux modes de transport alternatifs à l’automobile (PAGMTAA).

Thus, in September 2012, MOBI-O opened its doors and became the first ever expert-adivsor in Gatineau specialized in the transport sector. It responded to the necessity of taking action towards :

  1. Sustainable development
  2. Changing the transportation habits of the population
