Autobus Leeds Transit Acquires New Facility

At the end of September Leeds Transit purchased a 23,000 square foot building to serve as their permanent dealership facility. Located northeast of Montreal, the new building is in St-Roch-de-l’Achigan, near Terrebonne where we had been located temporarily for the last 16 months.

Along with 23,000 square feet the facility has 18 acres (750,000 square feet) and is located in an industrial park with quick and easy access to highway 25, just north of highway 640.

The building will serve as a complete dealership offering 8000 square feet of parts storage space and is capable of holding several buses in the service bays. There will be a dedicated washbay and detail area.

Sales and administration offices are upstairs, with plans for a parts and service customer reception area to be built in the front, downstairs area.

Autobus Leeds daily parts delivery service will continue to service the Greater Montreal area from this new location, with plans to expand routes and vehicles in the near future.
