The STM salutes the actions taken by Société de développement Angus (SDA) to mark En ville sans ma voiture !
Montreal, September 22, 2008 –For the September edition of its Midis Angus, organised each month for the 1200 Technopôle Angus workers, the Société de développement Angus (SDA) has decided to promote Car-Free Day, by taking part in En ville sans ma voiture !
The SDA invited all those who work in the Angus business complex to enjoy a variety of activities promoting public transportation. As a partner to the SDA in its sustainable transportation plan, the STM wanted to salute their initiative and support the SDA's determination with regards to its strong environmental stand by taking an active part in this special Midi Angus edition of En ville sans ma voiture !
Among the many activities held that day, there was a juice bar manned by an information agent who served up transportation cocktails to everyone as a way of raising awareness. Visitors could also admire a LEGO block replica of Préfontaine métro station, located next to Technopôle Angus.
Moreover, STM representatives were on hand to answer any questions about the OPUS card, current service improvements and any other subject of interest related to public transportation.
Bus and métro system maps were also distributed, along with Planibus timetables for each bus route either serving Technopôle Angus directly or making a stop nearby.
Communauto/STM : Duo Auto+ pamphlets were also handed out to anyone interested in adhering to the plan. Finally, event partners held a draw among the workers present for five OPUS card loaded with the monthly fare for October.
