National Capital Region – The National Capital Commission (NCC), in partnership with Transcollines, is offering even more ways to explore Gatineau Park this summer, with a new bus stop at Breton Beach, at Philippe Lake.

On Saturdays and Sundays, from July 23 to September 4, 2022, explore the Philippe Lake area free of charge using public transit. The Transcollines 924 line will be extended to the Breton Beach parking lot, allowing people to travel there from Galeries de Hull, the Gatineau Park Visitor Centre and other stops along the way.

There are a number of activities available at Breton Beach! Cool down in Philippe Lake, explore the trails, or rent a non-motorized boat nearby!

Transcollines buses are not accessible to people with reduced mobility. However, paratransit is available free of charge (reservations required). Transportation requests must be received by Transcollines by noon on the Friday preceding the desired service. Breton Beach is partially wheelchair-accessible.

Gatineau Park shuttle

The shuttle provides round-trip service between Ottawa–Gatineau and the Gatineau Park Visitor Centre in Chelsea, and stops at popular destinations along the parkways. The service is free this year, and the shuttles and stops are accessible to people with reduced mobility.
