The Bureau du taxi was first established on November 30, 1987, at the initative of the Communauté urbaine de Montréal (CUM).
At that time, it renewed taxi and limousine permits, administered exams and issued licenses. It also enforced the Loi concernant les services de transport par taxi and the Règlement relatif au transport par taxi et limousine.
In 1995, the Bureau du taxi was mandated by the Société de l'assurance automobile du Québec (SAAQ) to provide driver's license and registration services for both the taxi industry and the general public in Montréal.
In 2003, the Bureau extended its jurisdiction to towing activities, becoming the Bureau du taxi et du remorquage (BTR).
