Agence Metropolitaine de Transport

Canadian Pacific Railway operated Montreal suburban (commuter) service from the 1890's until September 30, 1982 following which a local government body was created, Montreal Urban Community Transit Commission (MUCTC).
It later became the Societe de transport de la Communaute urbaine de Montreal (STCUM) which lasted until
June 3, 1996 then becoming Agence Metropolitaine de Transport (AMT) continuing until June 1, 2017
at which time it became Réseau de Transport Métropolitain (RTM) also known as EXO.
