Montréal, March 1, 2013 – STM wants families to make the most of available activities during the winter school break and, as such, will again offer its Family Outings program during the entire break, from Saturday, March 2 to Sunday, March 10. During that time, an adult with a valid fare card for STM’s network can travel with up to five (5) children under the age of 12 at no extra cost. Transport adapté customers can also benefit from this offer.
This offer could not happen at a better time, while children are on holiday and several activities are available to them, their family and friends. Why bother with a car, when you can relax in the bus or métro while someone else does the driving and when so many activities held throughout the city are so easily reached by public transit? Besides, for children, riding the bus or metro is an adventure in itself and can be quite entertaining.
STM also invites its customers and their families to discover one of the largest underground art galleries in the world, the Montréal métro. Click here to find out more: http://www.stm.info/english/metro/art/a-index.htm.
Furthermore, in addition to let families save on transportation costs, the Family Outings program also provides exclusive discounts from twenty or so commercial partners offering tourist attractions, as well as cultural and recreational activities. STM invites you to check in advance the times and periods during which these discounts are valid with participating partners. A complete list of discounts can be viewed at this address: www.stm.info/english/info/a-famille.htm.
