Transit service in Trois-Rivières is provided by the STTR, formerly known as the CIT des Forges, or simply the CITF.  Service for the city of 126,000 is provided by a fleet of 36 buses, mostly NovaBus Classic and LFS buses.  Buses meet at transfer terminals all over the new city, which was formed by municipal amalgamation in January 2002.  In addition to the thirteen regular routes providing service throughout the city, there are two express routes which operate during weekday peak periods and six supplemental routes providing service in evenings and on Sundays in place of some regular routes.
