MOBILITY CORRIDORS IN LONGUEUIL: CHANGES ON SOME LINES
Longueuil, June 16, 2020 – The Réseau de transport de Longueuil (RTL) wishes to inform users that the temporary presence of active mobility corridors on certain streets in Longueuil, starting this week and until early September 2020, will result in detours and in bus stops being moved on its regular and paratransit networks.
Ville de Longueuil will install these corridors on rue Saint-Charles, Place Charles-LeMoyne, rue Saint-Laurent, and boulevard Gaétan-Boucher. This will require detours on certain bus lines, and certain paratransit pick-up and drop-off points will also have to be moved.
“Our teams are making every effort to limit the inconveniences to our users. We will do our best to make sure their trips are just as comfortable and efficient as what they are used to, with special emphasis on our paratransit users,” said Jonathan Tabarah, Chairman of the RTL Board of Directors.
Paratransit users will be informed of the changes when booking their trip. Users will be picked up and dropped off at specific locations to ensure their safety on sections of streets that may not be accessible as usual. For full details of the changes to bus stops, regular transit users can consult the Network Info page of the RTL website at https://www.rtl-longueuil.qc.ca/en-CA/customer-service/network-info/. The notices will be updated weekly to reflect the opening of any new corridors.
