The Autobus Auger Group is a charter bus company with several subsidiaries for school bus service, public transit, paratransit and tourist charters.  The largest public transit division, Autocars des Chutes, operates in co-operation with the Societé de transport de Lévis to serve communities not served by the STL, while smaller divisions provide service in the Côte-de-Beaupré, Ile d'Orléans, Jacques-Cartier and Portneuf regions.  In total, Autobus Auger has about 350 buses in six garages.

Autocars Québec Inc.

Les autocars Québec (formerly Autocars Tradition, acquired by M. Auger in 2003) once provided service from St-Augustin-de-Desmaures and the surrounding area, just west of Quebec City, to downtown Quebec under contract with the RTC.  The fleet consisted mostly of second-hand Classics, though there was a NovaBus RTS (a former demonstrator), some New Flyer D40 buses and a few Blue Bird Q-type vehicles.  The RTC assumed complete control of bus service in St-Augustin in June 2008, and all Autocars Québec buses were transferred to Autocars des Chutes.



931 was a 1983 GM T6H-5307N, seen here at the Palais du Gare train station in Quebec City on August 5, 2002.  Although this bus was designated as having a 6V71N engine, it was in fact equipped with an 8V71N power plant, most likely through a rebuild after the bus was purchased by Autocars Tradition.  This bus was originally STCUM 33-003, purchased second-hand from Montreal after it had been retired there in 1999.  This bus became Autocars Québec 83-109 before being sold to Lévis in 2004, where it was renumbered 8356 until its retirement.  It was restored by a private collector as STCUM 33-003, but the bus suffered a serious engine failure in February 2012 and was scrapped.

Autocars des Chutes Inc.

Les autocars des Chutes serves the Pintendre, Saint-Etienne, Saint-Nicolas and Saint-Rédempteur sectors in the western area of the City of Lévis, along with the municipalities of Breakeyville and Saint-Lambert-de-Lauzon, providing connections to Ste-Foy, Laval University and central Quebec City.  The fleet consists primarily of Classic, LFS and Thomas buses, and totals about 30 vehicles.



This Thomas Transliner was spotted on avenue Honoré-Mercier in Quebec City on June 27, 2005.  This bus was heading out to St-Nicolas on the south shore of the St. Lawrence River.
