The Vaudreuil-Hudson, Saint-Jerome and Candiac train lines will be closed for maintenance.

Officials closed the lines so workers could perform several updates, including adding a new signal system as well as create a larger platform at the Vendome station.

On Monday, no alternate bus service was provided by AMT transit authorities so commuters had to make alternate plans on local transit.

The service interruption will continue on the Vaudreuil-Hudson line Tuesday, but a special bus service will be offered.
