The driver of the car, a woman in her 40s, and two passengers, a woman in her 60s and a young child, were taken to hospital to be treated for injuries police say are not life-threatening.
The woman who was driving the bus, who is in her 30s, was also taken to hospital but to be treated for shock.
The scene was closed to traffic for a few hours during the night to be analyzed by investigators who will attempt to better understand the circumstances surrounding the event.
Last week, the driver of a city bus belonging to the Societe de transport de Montreal was taken to hospital for serious lower-body injuries after running into a 53-foot truck.
