Pilot project aimed at learning to use public transit
Longueuil, July 24, 2017 – The Réseau de transport de Longueuil (RTL), in collaboration with Ville de Longueuil, is pleased to announce the launch of a pilot project designed to help young children attending the Scouts day camp in Saint-Hubert learn about using public transit.
The project, which will run for eight weeks, will allow children registered in the 19th Saint Hubert Scout Group to ride the regular buses free of charge during off-peak hours. The project’s main goal is to introduce children to using public transit during summer activities, while teaching them about ways to adopt sustainable transportation practices.
“The project will allow children from an early age to test out and learn how to use the public transit system safely. This project is further proof that the RTL is always on the lookout for innovative ways to meet its users’ transportation needs,” emphasized Michel Veilleux, Executive Director of the RTL.
