LAVAL, QC, April 7, 2017 /CNW Telbec/ - As of April 10, 2017, the Société de transport de Laval (STL) will be offering a new on-call collective taxi service in Laval's Chomedey district. The T21 trial project is designed to serve several businesses located south of the Autoroute 440 on the service road, between Autoroute 13 and Boulevard Curé-Labelle, including, among others, the Centre de médecine sportive de Laval.
"The businesses in this area requested service on behalf of their employees and local residents. Unfortunately, we cannot provide safe service to the area given that it is located along a highway service road" says David De Cotis, President of the STL's Board of Directors.
"However, access is available at the back of these businesses which makes a collective taxi service a possibility, and this is what we have implemented" adds De Cotis. "We are pleased to work with citizens and businesses to improve travel in Laval" he adds.
The service will run every thirty minutes from Monday to Friday. The route, stops and schedule for the taxi service are all established in advance, based on the Centre de médecine sportive de Laval's opening hours, allowing for transfers to and from the regular STL network. Clients who would like to use the service must call beforehand to reserve their place at one of the scheduled stops by calling CO-OP Taxi Laval at 450 688-8700.
Reservations must be made at least 30 minutes before the departure time. To use the service, clients must be at the stop location they requested and show the driver their OPUS card with a valid fare for public transportation on the STL network.
