Heading back to school: New bus schedules effective August 27

The Société de transport de Laval (STL) is ready for the start of school and adjusted the schedules for its regular network, which will be effective Saturday, August 27.

For STL riders, these changes mean more frequent buses, even double the frequency during off-peak periods on several of Laval’s main roads, as well as improved universal accessibility on its network.

More buses during the day and evening

Since the pandemic, riders’ routines have changed. The STL has therefore changed its schedules according to the commuting needs that Laval residents have shared in some surveys. Several routes will have more bus frequency in the daytime, between 9 a.m. and 3 p.m., and in the evening, between 7 p.m. and 10 p.m., to adopt to this new reality. Main changes include:

DAYTIME ON WEEKDAYS:

  • More trips added to routes 43, 45 and 66 to increase the bus frequency to about every 30 minutes instead of 60 minutes
  • More trips added to route 222 for improved frequency combined with route 22, with a bus every 30 minutes to better serve the East Sector of the industrial park, in the Duvernay district
  • More trips added to route 151 in both directions

EVENING ON WEEKDAYS:

  • Extended service hours for route 42 in both directions and for route 65 northbound, to late night, to better serve workers
  • More trips added to route 151 in both directions
  • Improved bus frequency on Boulevard des Laurentides

 

REMINDER: Improvements made this summer

Since the start of the summer, several additional services have helped improve the commute for workers and riders in some sectors.

Val-des-Brises

Since May, a new shared taxi T48 service connecting the Vimont district to theVal-des-Brises commercial district.

The new taxi route, which is part of a pilot project, serves the workers of some 70 businesses east of Highway 19 and north of Highway 440 while providing customers of those businesses with a new transit option.

Cité de la Biotech 

A shared taxi route becomes a regular bus route! Considering how popular shared taxi T16 had become, this summer, the taxi route has been turned into bus route 16, and can now carry even more passengers to the businesses on Boulevard Armand-Frappier. Route 16 joins the 20 fully accessible bus routes on the network. Accessible routes use buses equipped with a ramp in front so that mobility-impaired riders can get on the bus more easily.

Saint-Vincent-de-Paul industrial district 

Routes 50 and 58 have been extended up to Paul-Kane terminus and have more buses running on weekdays and weekends.

 

Accessibility: Plan your trips well

To make it easier for mobility-impaired persons to use public transit, the STL has made 337 new stops accessible, in addition to some 900 that were already accessible across Laval, which is a 30% increase. Some new features are now available on the STL website so people with impaired mobility can better plan their trips based on accessible routes and accessible stops. 

 

Fare changes

For those of you who will be heading back to school or the office, note that there have been several fare changes in Laval and the greater metropolitan region, effective since July 1.

Going digital

The new schedules, effective until January 6, 2023, have been posted on the STL website

The STL has been working to fight against greenhouse gas emissions for a long time, but the environment must be protected through a variety of actions. Therefore, as of January 2023, the STL will no longer be systematically distributing hundreds of thousands of paper bus schedules.

Paper schedules going into effect August 27, 2022 will be the last printed schedules. A note has been added to these schedules advising STL riders.

The STL is already working towards a smooth transition so that STL users can get familiar with alternative ways to keep viewing bus schedules.

 

Labour Day

To end on a holiday note, we remind you that on Labour Day, September 5, we will be running on the Sunday schedule.
