RTL SERVICE AS OF APRIL 5
Longueuil, 2021-03-29 – The Réseau de transport de Longueuil (RTL) wishes to inform users of slight changes to its service scheduled to take effect on April 5, 2021.
Throughout the pandemic, the RTL has maintained its services in step with changing government guidelines, continuously improving its service offer as the pandemic evolves.
“Our teams work tirelessly on a daily basis to meet the needs of our users as best possible, and to the best of our abilities. The lines toward downtown Montréal are the ones that have been most affected over the past year, with ridership down significantly following the government’s order to work from home,” stated Jonathan Tabarah, Chairman of the RTL Board of Directors. “However, it is important to remember that most of our internal lines have been maintained and that our users continue to have access to both industrial and commercial sectors alike. The RTL has also continued to focus on sectors where hospitals and schools are located, not to mention underprivileged users.”
The following lines will be in service: 1, 3, 4, 5, 6, 8, 10, 13, 14, 15, 16, 17, 19, 20, 21, 22, 23, 25, 28, 29, 32, 34, 35, 39, 41, 42, 43, 44, 45, 47, 49, 50, 54, 55, 59, 60, 61, 71, 73, 74, 75, 76, 77, 78, 80, 81, 83, 84, 88, 90, 98, 99, 121, 123, 125, 132, 161, 170, 180, 185, 410, 417, T20, T21, T22, T48, T77, T89, T92, T93, and T94.
To better meet the needs of our users, changes will be made to lines 42, 60, 121, 132, T22, T48, and T89. Departures have also been added to line 25, as part of a pilot project to improve public transit services for employees of Groupe AFFI.
For hygiene reasons, paper schedules will not be available; however, our schedules can be downloaded from our website. To better plan your trips, we encourage you to follow our Twitter feed (@RTL_Info). The Chrono, Google and Transit mobile apps will also be updated to reflect the new schedules.
No changes are anticipated to paratransit services. Paratransit users must call 450-670-2992 to book their trip.
