Longueuil, August 7, 2019 - The Réseau de transport de Longueuil (RTL) is announcing the introduction of seven new, universally accessible lines- 3, 10, 17, 21, 39, 41 and 43 - bringing to 16 the total number of accessible lines on its network.
These new lines, accessible to individuals with reduced mobility, will be available starting August 19, the first day of the RTL’s fall schedule. As it does every year, the RTL reviewed its service offer and made the necessary adjustments for the end of summer vacation season and the start of the school year.
Schedule and route changes will be made on certain lines, and service will be stepped up on several others for the fall season. Here are a few of the main changes that will take effect on August 19:
A departure will be added on lines:
- 1, 15, 16, 73, 76, 77, 78, 82, 90, during morning rush hour;
- 2, 4 and 506, during afternoon rush hour;
- 45, in the late evening.
Two departures will also be added on line 90 at the start of the afternoon rush hour.
To respond to the increase in ridership, the route for line 690 will be adjusted in order to serve the R section in Brossard. A new line (689) will also be added for the S and R sections in Brossard.
Route time adjustments
Adjustments will be made to route times to ensure punctual service on lines:
- 4, 13, 16, 77 (weekdays);
- 73 (weekdays and weekends).
Other route time adjustments will also be made on lines 61, 80, 82, 85, 86, 180, and 185 due to the construction work on the boulevard de Montarville overpass.
