NEW LOCKDOWN: RTL STANDING BY FOR ESSENTIAL TRAVEL
Longueuil, January 7, 2021 - In response to the latest government measures put in place to manage the COVID-19 pandemic, the Réseau de transport de Longueuil (RTL) wishes to reassure its users and partners that all current services will be maintained, namely buses, shared taxis, and RTL à la demande.
As it did during last spring’s lockdown, the RTL network will continue to operate during the day and in the evening, despite the government-imposed curfew. We will continue to serve the main sectors of the Agglomération, although priority will be given to the central ones, in order to meet the basic needs of the population and ensure that essential workers can get to work.
We will also continue to monitor the network, adjusting our service insofar as possible to the evolving situation and available resources.
Finally, we urge our users to respect the health measures in place, including wearing a mask, refraining from using public transit if they are showing symptoms of COVID-19, and avoiding all non-essential travel.
Paratransit users may only travel for work and medical reasons between 8 p.m. and 5 a.m., from Saturday, January 9, until Monday, February 8, 2021, inclusively.
