RTL PARTNERS WITH THE RIDE OF SILENCE
Longueuil, May 2, 2018 – The Réseau de transport de Longueuil (RTL) will once again be partnering with the Ride of Silence on Montréal’s South Shore. This will be the 15th edition of the event, designed to raise awareness and to commemorate cyclists injured or killed in road accidents. The Ride will begin from the Longueuil City Hall at 6:45 p.m. on May 16.
“Road safety is a priority for the Réseau de transport de Longueuil, and sharing the road safely is something we think about every day. We encourage responsible behaviour, be it by pedestrians, cyclists, motorists or heavy vehicles such as the RTL’s buses,” added Pierre Brodeur, Chairman of the RTL Board of Directors.
The Réseau de transport de Longueuil places special emphasis on sharing the road with cyclists, regularly educates its drivers on this topic and, for the past several years, has supported the road safety campaigns led by the Service de police de l’Agglomération de Longueuil (SPAL).
