Hmm, Line 461 doesn't appear in the RTL's published list of additional services starting tomorrow, nor are schedules for the line visible on their website. Has something changed in the last couple of weeks?

https://rtl-longueuil.qc.ca/fr-CA/actualites/avis-a-la-clientele/2021/modifications-de-service-des-le-1er-novembre/

The terminals are not yet ready (neither are the bus lanes) so the unveiling of the 461 has been put off indefinitely. Drivers who signed this work are forced to sit spare in the break room at GALO and may be sent out based on seniority.

At the same time, service has been beefed up on the 61, and the return of rush hour route 9 on a 30 minute headway was implemented as of 1 November 2021 instead of 3 January 2022.

Speaking of January 2022, I do have some spoilers of what is to come (major changes only).

  • Return of route 9 (already taken place)
  • Route 22 extended to stationnement de Mortagne
  • Route 35 to receive 15 min headway instead of 30 during AM and PM rush. Don't forget that route 135 is not likely to return.
  • Return of route 37 during rush hours operating every 30 mins and will load at Panama at platform 17 (routes 13 and 526)
  • Routes 41 and 43 will see a service increase of every half hour at rush hours, therefore combined average of 15 mins.
  • Route 50 will see a service increase of every 30 mins during rush hours
  • Route 77 will see service increases at rush hours (not specified)
  • Return of route 82 with half hourly service during rush hours
  • Route 99: increased service during AM rush only
  • Return of route 199 wth 2 morning trippers and 3 pm trippers
  • Return of SkiBus 299, with stops added.
  • 534 Centennial extended to Place Java (I really don't know why, this is an industrial park. Maybe trips will be interlined with the 35)
  • 607 Agora will have an additional departure in the PM
  • 613 Colleges will be extended to Tiffin and Patenaude
  • 640 Antoine-Brossard, 1 extra trip in PM. Same for 656 and 664
  • 660 Antoine-Brossard will have 1 extra trip in AM and PM. Same as 670. Seems to be the covid extras given out in OT are becoming permanent additions in the crews.
  • Minor changes for 675, 676, 678 Jacques-Rousseau.
  • 695 Lucille-Teasdale will have 1 extra trip in AM and PM.

PS I managed to download a 461 schedule before it was taken down, so if anyone is interested, maybe I can upload it here for your viewing pleasure.

Hi everybody, bit of breaking news... 461 kicks in on Monday 13 December 2021. I expect the website to be updated momentarily. At the time of typing, there is no news release or schedule available online.

Please note that the RTL platforms at Radisson for routes 61 and 461 will move to the new terminal on rue du Trianon north of rue Faradon beside Place Versailles.

The reserved lane on A20 is only open partially westbound, still nothing eastbound, and the RTL expects to open segments once they become available...

Route 201 (electric) will see some changes starting May 9. The route will be much shorter removing service in some areas of Saint-Lambert. However, service will now be every 40 minutes instead of every hour. Route is still operating mid-day monday to friday

And here's (finally!) an official announcement about that "new" route, en français:
