SKIBUS AT MÉTRO LONGUEUIL–UNIVERSITÉ-DE-SHERBROOKE
Shuttle bus to Ski Saint-Bruno from the Longueuil terminal
Longueuil, December 21, 2017 – The Réseau de transport de Longueuil (RTL), the city of Saint Bruno-de-Montarville, and Ski Saint-Bruno will once again work together to transport skiers and snowboarders to Ski Saint-Bruno free of charge.
The shuttle is back for a second year in a row, with an enhanced service offer. New for 2018, the SkiBus will now depart from platform 41, wing F of the bus terminal at the Longueuil–Université-de-Sherbrooke metro station.
The shuttle will operate on Saturdays and Sundays between January 6 and March 11, 2018, as well as during spring break, from March 5 to 9, 2018. The SkiBus will run every 90 minutes, with the first departure leaving Longueuil at 1:30 p.m. and the last return trip leaving Ski Saint-Bruno at 10 p.m. The bus will make a few stops along the way, including at the Saint-Hubert interchange on Route 116 and along the route in Saint-Bruno-de-Montarville.
“In addition to varying our service offer and allowing users get out and enjoy the winter, we’re improving our weekend service by offering a link to the Longueuil terminal, while still serving Saint Bruno de-Montarville, with stops on boulevard Seigneurial and rue de Montarville,” pointed out Pierre Brodeur, Vice-Chairman of the RTL Board of Directors.
“Saint-Bruno is proud to be the home of the largest ski school in Canada. The improved access to sliding sports created through our partnership with the RTL and Ski Saint-Bruno brings added value to the young people and families living in our city. Let’s take advantage of it!” said Martin Murray, Mayor of Saint-Bruno-de-Montarville.
“We’re very pleased that the RTL and Saint-Bruno-de-Montarville have joined forces to provide public transit to Ski Saint-Bruno (SSB) from the Longueuil metro, a service that will give city dwellers direct access to our resort. We’re proud to be the only ski resort with a direct link to the island of Montréal and of our role in encouraging healthy lifestyles and sustainable development,” concluded Patrice Boire, Executive Vice-President, Ski Saint-Bruno.
