Paratransit service
Paratransit users must call 450-670-2992 to book their trip. No changes are anticipated.

Service adjustments
In addition to the changes made to our service starting August 24, the RTL will monitor the situation closely, adjusting its service as best possible in response to users’ needs, ridership, and the reopening of certain sectors. For the latest changes, consult the public notices on a regular basis.

Face covering mandatory and return of front-door boarding
Since July 27, it has been mandatory to wear a mask or a face covering on public transit and in all enclosed and partially enclosed public places, such as terminals. Starting August 1, when all buses were equipped with a physical barrier to protect the drivers, users have also been allowed to board through the front door, and transit passes are once again being validated. However, users must exit by the rear door to avoid overcrowding and close contact in the buses. Users with reduced mobility or accessibility and special needs may continue to exit using the ramp at the front door.

Schedules
No paper schedules will be issued to reflect these changes. For the arrival times of your buses, visit our website or subscribe to notifications from the Chrono app.
