The Angus plan: Making innovative transportation accessible
Technopôle Angus is the first property manager to offer tenants complimentary Mobility Passports (Passeport mobilité), a package developed by Voyagez Futé to encourage businesses and their employees to use public and active transportation for their daily commute. The passport includes a one-year STM transit pass, a one-year BIXI pass, and a one-year Communauto "Open Plan" membership. One Mobility Passport is included with every 2,000 sq. ft. leased.
The Angus site is a convenient walk from Préfontaine and Rosemont Metro stations and served by 5 bus lines including the dedicated 25 Angus. The site boasts two bike paths, a BIXI station, two carshare services (Communauto and Car2Go), and an electric vehicle charging station.
