Info COVID-19 STLaval.ca - Commute only if necessary - Face covering mandatory bus+terminal
LAST UPDATE - JANUARY 15, 2021
Public transit is deemed an essential service. As a result, regular bus service and shared taxi service will remain operational network-wide, and this includes evening service, so essential workers may continue to rely on their transportation.
If you don’t need to commute, stay at home in accordance with the government curfew in effect from January 9 through February 8, 2021, and refrain from using STL bus stops and bus terminals between 8 p.m. and 5 a.m.
As for our paratransit service, it will be maintained as per the measures already in place due to the pandemic. However, only medical or work related travel will be permitted during the curfew period.
The Government of Quebec has announced that wearing a face covering is mandatory in public transportation for passengers 10 years* of age or older. The wearing of face covers is also compulsory in our terminals. Inside, on our embarkation and disembarkation platforms and at bus shelters (on our terminals only). Please wear a face cover when using public transportation.
Please bear in mind that it is not the bus driver’s responsibility to refuse entry to or force out users not wearing a mask on STL buses or facilities. Our teams’ role regarding the mandatory face covering rule as well as the application of any other rules is to remind users about the directives in place, maintain bus service so the other users on board are not penalized, and notify a supervisor in situations requiring further intervention.
All of our buses will be outfitted with a protective shield surrounding the driver area. The shield, made of translucent Lexan, allows for maximum visibility while protecting drivers. In accordance with the standards established by the CNESST, the drivers can remove their face covering once seated inside their driving area, since this shield creates a protective buffer area between them and the passengers, who are required to respect the signage in place to keep a distance of 2 meters from the driving area.
For your safety and that of others, please wear your face covering adequately for the complete duration of your trip. Thank you for keeping civic-mindedness top-of-mind at all times. Moving forward together while respecting the new rules!
OPUS cards will be issued and renewed by appointment only to foster social distancing at ticket offices. Make sure you’ve completed all of the required documents and to have them on you when leaving for your appointment. Questions? Contact us: 450 688-6520.

For your safety, the safety of drivers and other riders:
We are in constant communication with government agencies and our fellow public transit authorities in a joint effort to find common solutions. We are adapting accordingly as new directives arise. As a public transit authority, the STL will continue to adhere to the recommendations of public health agencies.
The hygiene rules recognized and recommended by the provincial public health agency Santé publique are still the most effective way to prevent infection and the virus from spreading.
