The use of public transport to the eastern regions-du-Quebec will soon be possible again, since Keolis Canada announced the resumption of service, Orleans Express between the Bas-Saint-Laurent and the Gaspé peninsula as early as Friday.
“We had as an objective to relaunch the regional service at the earliest and we are very pleased to be able to cover some territories now. Upon the resumption of the Montréal-Québec, we have seen a growing interest and we have been listening to requests to restart the service to the regions”, indicated Tuesday by way of a press release Pierre-Paul Pharand, president and ceo of Keolis Canada.
Mr. Pharand has said that the next regions to find their bus will be the Centre-du-Québec and the Mauricie region, while the construction holidays bring with them more demands of users.
The company has also said it will increase the frequency of trips between Montreal and Quebec, and that the parcel delivery service Expedibus (between these two cities) will resume from July 17.
The measures of health and safety will not change, however, not. The number of passengers per bus will always be limited to 14 and the users will have to wear the mask at the train station and in the vehicles. The washing of the hands at the time of boarding is also.
In addition, children may not travel alone and passengers will not consume food onboard. Only online payments will be accepted.
