Well aware of the challenges of climate change, the Société de transport de Laval (STL) will be offering $1 rides on September 17 to encourage all Laval residents to take public transit. The fare can be paid in cash or by credit card and is valid on the entire regular network of STL buses and shared taxis.
The $1 Ride Day is intended to get people to choose public transit over driving, and in doing so, help them reduce their carbon footprint. What’s more, for each additional ride purchased on its network, the STL will direct the equivalent in cash to a local organization to support tree planting in Laval. It’s a practical way to increase ridership, encourage non-riders to try transit, and help reduce GHG emissions.
“Public transit plays a crucial role in the fight against climate change,” said Éric Morasse, Chair of the STL Board of Directors. “By making transit available at a fraction of the cost and by donating the cash equivalent of additional rides to support tree planting in Laval, the STL stands out once again as a facilitator in the lives of Laval residents and as a sustainable mobility leader—just as it has done for the past 50 years,” he added.
The $1 Ride Day is part of the STL’s special fare policy, as are “smog days,” where the same $1 fare applies whenever Environment Canada issues a smog warning.
