New timetables from June 25: Summer rhymes with mobility

 
Laval, June 16, 2022 - From June 25 to August 28, the Société de transport de Laval (STL) will be in summer mode. On the program: new bus schedules, new routes, new fares and exclusive offers for public transit customers in Laval.
 
To plan your trips, use the trip planner available at STLaval.ca and to find out the bus schedule in real time, text your stop number to 511785. And watch out for holiday schedules:
 Fête nationale du Québec on June 24: Sunday service
 Canada Day, July 1: Saturday service
 
Better service for workers
Two new features will make it easier for workers in the Biotech City and the Saint-Vincent-de-Paul industrial district to get around:
 The T16 public cab will soon become the 16 bus line, transporting even more customers to businesses on boulevard Armand-Frappier. Line 16 becomes one of the network's fully accessible lines.
 Routes 50 and 58 will be extended to the Paul-Kane terminus and enhanced with additional weekday and weekend service.
 
Accessible stops
To improve travel for people with reduced mobility, 337 stops in the network became accessible this year, adding to the 900 or so already accessible throughout Laval. A recently installed icon on stop signs now indicates which stops are accessible. By the end of the summer, new functionalities will be available on the Société's website to enable customers to better plan their trips, taking into account accessible lines and stops.
 
Roadwork season
We're adjusting! Lines crossing major roadworks, such as the Pie-IX bridge and Marcel-Laurin boulevard, will also see their journey times adjusted to avoid delays.
On the road to simplified pricing
As of July 1, the new fares set by the Autorité régionale de transport métropolitain (ARTM) will come into effect. New features include:  The introduction of the Bus fare, replacing the STL fare, for bus travel in the greater metropolitan area.  The introduction of the Tous modes AB pass, which replaces the TRAM3 pass and gives access to all public transit modes (bus, metro, train) in Laval, Montreal and the Longueuil agglomeration.  The transfer time for the new Bus and Tous modes AB fares will be 120 minutes.
 
Summer with the STL is Xtra
With the XTRA pass, Opus cardholders with photo and reduced fare (12-17 years) travel throughout July and August for only $71. This offer, exclusive to the STL bus network, is on sale until July 19.
 
360 Shuttle: free downtown tour
Get around downtown Laval with the free 360 shuttle, in service 7 days a week, all summer long. Departures every 20 minutes from platform 8 at the Montmorency terminus. Visit shuttle360.com for a map and schedule.
 
Jeux du Québec: Transporting athletes to the city. And to the podium.
From July 22 to 30, the STL will be transporting athletes and volunteers free of charge to the 55th finals of the Jeux du Québec in Laval. Come and cheer on young sporting talent from near and far by taking public transit to one of the 14 competition sites.Laval2022.jeuxduquebec.com
 
On smoggy days, the bus is $1
Once again this year, the STL is pursuing one of its flagship environmental initiatives. Until Labour Day, every day that Environment Canada issues a smog advisory, the next day's transportation is offered at the special rate of $1 (payable in cash or by credit card) on the regular network.
And if you wish, don't forget that you can pay by contactless credit card on all our buses!
