Longueuil, May 30, 2018 – The Réseau de transport de Longueuil (RTL) is pleased to announce that the Bus des îles will be running for the second year in a row, thanks to a partnership with Ville de Longueuil, Tourisme Montérégie and Sépaq. From June 23 until September 3, the shuttle will transport customers free of charge from the Longueuil terminal to the Longueuil municipal beach and the Îles-de-Boucherville national park.
The service will be available on Saturdays and Sundays, as well as statutory holidays, with a first departure from the Longueuil terminal at 9:45 a.m. and a last departure from the municipal beach at 6:09 p.m. Sépaq will offer shuttle users a 25% discount on its equipment rental services and on certain activities at the national park.
