Plaza St-Hubert, June 15 – 18 inclusively Fun shopping with us, by métro and bus !

Press release

Montréal, June 15, 2011   The Société de transport de Montréal (STM) invites people in Montréal to take part in a shopping event with the STM and the SDC Plaza St-Hubert. Themed Fun shopping with us, by métro and bus, the event will take place June 15 – 18, 2011, between Bellechasse and Jean-Talon.

The STM encourages Montrealers to use the métro and bus to do their shopping during these four days and, by the same token, take advantage of interesting discounts, in addition to the special activities planned for Saturday, June 18 in a number of businesses and around the Funambus, parked at the corner of Bellechasse and St-Hubert.

The specific purpose of this latest promotional campaign, prepared in collaboration with Plaza St-Hubert merchants, is to encourage the public to run their errands along one of Montréal’s well-known shopping streets, to raise awareness about the importance of doing their share for the environment by using public transportation and to create long-term partnership with the merchants we serve throughout our operating area, by inviting them to join the movement known as Society in Motion.

Upon presenting a coupon featured in the 24H newspaper from Monday, June 13 to Friday, June 17, along with a transit pass valid for the STM network, clients will receive a reusable shopping bag featuring Society in Motion colours from participating merchants, easily identified by the sticker in the window or on the door of their establishment. Moreover, anyone shopping in these stores can enjoy savings on their purchases upon showing their OPUS card or other valid STM transit fare.

The STM reminds that it received an Outstanding Public Transportation System in North America award from the American Public Transportation Association, for the excellent results achieved from 2007 to 2009 in terms of productivity and efficiency.
