Most bus lines go to the Longueuil, Downtown or Panama terminals; two are bound for the Papineau and Radisson metro stations, and the others (taxis included) circulate within the territory. 

The network is structured in a way that meets users’ transit needs and always with a view to reducing commute times. Customers benefit from direct access to the Downtown terminal in the southern part of the territory and to the Longueuil terminal in the northern part of the territory.

The same applies along major roads on which the territory’s main points of interest are located.  Based on the responses to the 2013 Origine-Destination survey, RTL customers are 91.2% South Shore residents, while 8.8% are non-residents, mainly from Montréal. The average age of customers is 34.8 years.
