With Eco Mobile à Laval, the Société de transport de Laval is reaffirming its green commitment



    LAVAL, QC, April 29 /CNW Telbec/ - The Société de transport de Laval
(STL) is proud to be joining together with Vélo Québec Association to promote
alternatives to single-occupant vehicle use, in order to protect the
environment.
    Recognized for its vast expertise in mobilization and communication, Vélo
Québec Association is a front-line player in promoting active transportation.
The STL is therefore delighted to have this association's support.
    Thanks to a joint financial contribution from the Ministère des
Transports du Québec and the STL, Vélo Québec Association will be able to set
up a door-to-door a canvassing brigade this summer, on Laval territory. This
brigade will be in charge of increasing the awareness of nearly 20,000
households about the options of green transportation available to them: bus,
bike and walking.
    The campaign-called Eco Mobile à Laval-is a first in Québec.
    This initiative is adding to the already impressive list of actions
undertaken by the STL to encourage a significant reduction in greenhouse
gases:

    
    - conversion of its fleet to bio-diesel fuel;

    - fare policy and improvements to service aimed at increasing ridership;

    - Smog fare;

    - partnership with organizations dedicated to sustainable mobility,
      including Vélo Québec;

    - feasibility study of a trolleybus system.
