The Régie intermunicipale de transport Gaspésie — Îles-de-la-Madeleine (RÉGÎM) is proud to announce the installation of 10 bus shelters on the Gaspé Peninsula. Public transit users will now be able to wait for the bus sheltered from bad weather. This installation is the first phase of a project by the RÉGÎM, which hopes that bus shelters will eventually be able to crisscross the entire territory.
To date, seven bus shelters have been installed in Bonaventure, Carleton-sur-Mer, Percé and Pointe-à-la-Croix. In the spring, three more will be installed in Maria, Sainte-Anne-des-Monts and Gaspé.
“The installation of these bus shelters increases the comfort of our users, especially in case of bad weather. Our goal was to improve accessibility to our services and we invite the population to take full advantage of them,” said Marie-Andrée Pichette, General Manager of the RÉGÎM.
“It is thanks to the Fonds d’appui au rayonnement des régions (ministère des Affaires municipales et de l’Habitation), as well as to the involvement of the municipalities where the bus shelters are located that the project was able to emerge. The cohesion between the various municipalities in the region allows for greater visibility of the services offered by the RÉGÎM on the territory,” added Daniel Côté, President of the RÉGÎM, Prefect of the MRC de La Côte-de-Gaspé and Mayor of Gaspé.
