RTL introduces line 781 between Boucherville dock and De Montarville terminal
Longueuil, June 7, 2022 - This weekend, the Réseau de transport de Longueuil (RTL) introduced line 781, which will run until September 18 between the Yvon-Julien municipal dock in Boucherville and the De Montarville terminal. All summer long, river shuttles will operate from this dock, crossing the St. Lawrence River between the South Shore and the island of Montréal. Line 781 was officially inaugurated yesterday in the presence of Magalie Queval, councillor for Boucherville and RTL Board member, and Karine Desgagné, Chef – Développement du transport, portefeuille de projets et partenariats at the RTL.
RTL line 781 is a quick, direct link that will take riders from the Yvon-Julien dock to the De Montarville park-and-ride lot in about 3 minutes! Line 61 does the same but in the opposite direction (from the parking lot to the dock).
