Montréal, May 14, 1997 - For the second consecutive year, the STCUM is welcoming TRANSPORT 2000 in the métro to highlight International Clean Air Day. Thursday May 15, from 7 a.m. to 6 p.m., commuters passing through the Berri-UQAM, McGill, Bonaventure and Henri-Bourassa métro stations will be invited to join in several information and entertainment activities. They can also participate in the quiz on public transit and have a chance of winning one of 50 STCUM Bus-Métro passes (CAM).
The goal of this event is to actualize the importance of the most economical means of public transportation in terms of energy consumption as well as the least polluting in terms of harmful gases released into the atmosphere.
The STCUM handles about 335 million trips each year of which 185 million are by bus. Its some 1,400 buses travel over 77 kilometres annually, i.e. 415 times less than automobiles and vans on the Montréal area roads.
Since one bus can replace 50 cars and one métro train, 850, public transit is obviously an intelligent option. International Clean Air Day is therefore a choice opportunity to remind...motorists!
