Boisbriand Welcomes Communauto in a Groundbreaking Pilot Project

On April 9, 2024, Boisbriand announced an exciting development in sustainable urban transport. Through the persistent efforts of its Urban Planning Service, Boisbriand has become the first city in the Laurentides to introduce a pilot car-sharing project with Communauto. This service will be available from May 1, providing residents with an eco-friendly and economical transportation option.

The city will set up two stations, each hosting two hybrid vehicles. One station will be located at the Recreational Centre at 989 Blvd. de la Grande-Allée, and the other at Wilfrid-Dion Park, situated at the corner of Blvd. de la Grande-Allée and Ave. des Grandes Tourelles. This arrangement ensures that all residents have convenient access to the vehicles, facilitating ease of mobility whenever needed.

Christine Beaudette, the mayor of Boisbriand, expressed her delight at the project’s launch: “We are very happy to initiate this project in Boisbriand and to finally provide our citizens with a new way to travel. Car-sharing is an economical and ecological initiative, and I hope it will inspire other cities to join the Communauto movement.”

Adding to this, Marco Viviani, Vice President of Strategic Development, highlighted the innovative aspect of this initiative: “Boisbriand is pioneering by supporting the deployment of car-sharing services, which opens up new opportunities even in less urban areas. This long-term strategy underscores the city’s commitment to diversifying mobility choices for its citizens, generating mutual benefits for all parties involved.”

The service is open to all Communauto users and aims to reduce greenhouse gas emissions while enhancing sustainable mobility options in the region. Boisbriand and Communauto are encouraging potential users to sign up online at boisbriand.communauto.com to take advantage of the service from day one. For the first three months after launch, Boisbriand residents can enjoy a $45 discount on the ‘Liberté Plus’ or any ‘Economique’ package subscription with the promo code BOISBD45. This promotional offer is valid until July 31, 2024.

Using Communauto is straightforward. Once registered, users can reserve a vehicle through the Communauto app, pick up the car from its designated spot, use it, and return it to the same location. Charges are based only on usage duration and kilometers driven. To learn more about the service details, interested individuals can visit communauto.com.

This pilot project not only marks a step forward in Boisbriand’s environmental initiatives but also sets a precedent for other municipalities considering similar sustainable transportation solutions.
