Autobus Les Sillons has been working since the early 1970s in the transport sector, mainly in school transportation on the Iles de la Madeleine archipelago. It was officially, in 1992, that Mr. Nicolas Cormier bought all the company`s shares and over the years chose his two sons as partners in order to ensure the succession and the expansion of the services. In 1996, the company obtains the contract of agent in mechanical inspection on behalf of the Société de l`Assurance Automobile du Québec for the district of Iles de la Madeleine. A contract it still holds to this day.

In 1998, a general mechanical service for heavy vehicles was added to the service offering and in 2002, the company broadened its scope by offering a service of guided tours on the archipelago with the acquisition of luxury buses, as well as commercial minibuses. After accumulating several major achievements over the years, Autobus Les Sillons has earned a reputation for excellence and remarkable reliability.

In 2010, the company acquired a first 55-passenger luxury coach in order to meet customer needs and thus solidify its position as a leader in bus transport in the Magdalen Islands region.
