STL: THE SMOG ALERT ENDS TONIGHT IN LAVAL
Starting tomorrow: return to regular fare on STL buses
LAVAL, QC, Aug. 7, 2023 /CNW/ – Environment Canada having lifted its smog warning for the Laval area, the Société de transport de Laval (STL) is ending its special $1 fare promotion in effect since August 7. Consequently, as of tomorrow, August 8, the single fare will return to its regular rate of $3.75 on STL’s entire regular network (buses and collective taxis).
The STL salutes and thanks all those who have chosen to leave their car at home and opt for public transit, thus contributing to improving air quality.
Launched in 2008, the STL’s Smog Alert is a unique initiative in Canada. It aims to promote the use of public transit rather than the car when the air quality deteriorates to the point of falling below acceptable standards.
The STL monitors Environment Canada smog alerts until Labor Day.
If a new smog alert is issued by Environment Canada, the STL will post a message on its website, social media, travel information tools and in a newsletter to its subscribers, in addition to communicating the information to media.
Relying on a dedicated team of more than 1,100 employees, the STL develops and operates an integrated network of buses, school transportation, shared taxis and paratransit. The STL’s regular bus network has 46 lines, some 2,700 stops and covers nearly 1,500 kilometers in Laval. stlaval.ca
