RTL enhances service and redraws line 201 electric midibus route in Saint Lambert
Local trips are a breeze with the RTL
Longueuil, May 3, 2022 – To better serve local users, the Réseau de transport de Longueuil (RTL) is announcing that, starting Monday, May 9, the route for line 201 in Saint-Lambert will be redrawn and buses will pass more often.
- As part of a pilot project started in summer 2021, five (5) 100% electric midibuses have been travelling routes designed to serve local businesses and services in the five cities that make up the Agglomération, namely Boucherville, Brossard, Longueuil, Saint-Bruno-de-Montarville and Saint-Lambert.
- From now on (and still as part of the pilot project), line 201 in Saint-Lambert will have 10 departures, every 40 minutes. It will also run during off-peak hours, with the first departure at 9:10 a.m. and the last at 3:10 p.m., Monday to Friday. The new schedule will be available on the Chrono mobile app starting June 27.
- The short loop of 9.1 km long will take 29 minutes to complete.
- The revised route maintains or improves access to certain public places in Saint-Lambert or in adjacent sectors. These include:
- City Hall;
- Recreation centre;
- Piscine Émilie-Heymans;
- Aréna Eric-Sharp;
- Curling club;
- Hôpital Charles-Le Moyne;
- Parc Bariteau;
- Parc de Brixton;
