Press release


Run your errands by bus or métro, either way,
you’re good to go! it’s happening tomorrow…

Montréal, November 24, 2010
The Société de transport de Montréal (STM) would like to remind its clientele that tomorrow marks the roll-out of the shopping event under the theme, Faire ses courses en métro et en bus rapporte plus ! This public transit promotional campaign is taking place in collaboration with retailers who will display the “Society in Motion” symbol on their premises on Montréal’s main commercial arteries.

Today, November 24, reusable bags sporting the “Society in Motion” colours will be handed out free of charge at the Mt-Royal, Beaubien and McGill métro stations starting at 3:00 p.m., while quantities last. Clients who pick up one of these bags will find a list inside of the 285 businesses that will be offering discounts throughout the day on November 25. Those who shop at one of these retailers will be able to save on their purchases upon presentation of their Opus card, their valid STM fare or the reusable bag.

Through this campaign, the STM is focusing in particular on encouraging Montrealers to do their holiday shopping in Montréal and on making them aware of the importance of doing their part for the environment by using public transit. Just as important is creating a lasting partnership with the retailers it serves across the territory by inviting them to join a “Society in Motion.”

Finally, it should be noted that the STM won the American Public Transportation Association’s 2010 award as Outstanding Public Transportation System in North America. This award was in recognition of the excellent results it achieved between 2007 and 2009 in terms of effectiveness and efficiency.
