Sherbrooke public transit maintains summer schedule

Record Staff

The Société de transport de Sherbrooke (STS) announces that it is maintaining its summer schedule until further notice. The STS will continue to offer its public transit service while remaining in “essential services” mode, a decision made by the members of the board of directors at its regular meeting held on April 8. “Public transit must remain accessible to the population, and to do so, the summer schedule offers a level of service that meets the needs of the clientele and, more specifically, the workers who must get to their workplace,” explained Marc Denault, President of the STS in a recent press release.
The Québec government has announced a gradual return to certain activities over the coming weeks and even days, as well as continued compliance with the two-metre social distancing requirement. In this context, the STS is maintaining its summer schedule and is closely monitoring developments while applying appropriate measures to protect the health and safety of customers and employees.
Customers are invited to consult all the passenger information available on the various information tools: timetable sheets, Infobus, Internet site, route planner and mobile application. The STS would like to remind the public that it takes the COVID-19 health issue very seriously and that it is making every effort to offer adequate, quality service to its customers, while respecting its employees and government directives. It is therefore important to respect the hygiene rules recommended by public health: Wash your hands frequently; avoid touching your face; cough or sneeze into the crook of your arm; stay home if you are sick; respect the social distance of two meters.
