MONTREAL, July 14. 2020 / CNW Telbec / - Netlift has set up an eco-responsible mobility program to reduce congestion and the risk of accidents related to large volumes of solo driving around educational institutions in Quebec. This is an innovative, safe and eco-responsible solution that will allow parents of children attending schools to have access to a structured carpooling program dedicated to all members of their community.

This solution is all the more relevant in the current context for the start of the 2020-2021 school year since it makes it possible to limit the level of exposure of participants to stable crews formed by trusted third parties. In addition, it allows parents to save time and money, as well as to minimize the number of vehicles around a facility during peak hours.

The Beaubois College, located in the west of Montreal, has been working with Netlift for several months now to allow the development of a mobility alternative well suited to the school context. 

Sustainable development, by making the community of a school establishment aware of solidarity actions and by developing, as of now, sustainable behavior among generations of future drivers is at the heart of the vision of this initiative.

This innovative solution is also distinguished by the following three elements:

  • technology: the Netlift application facilitates the pairing of parent-carpoolers;
  • security: through the criminal background check of parent-drivers and the boarding and disembarking notifications of schoolchildren;
  • the environment: monitoring the savings in greenhouse gases (GHGs) avoided by targeting generators of regular large trips.

The Federation of Private Educational Institutions (FEEP) welcomes this initiative and salutes the work of Collège Beaubois in setting up this program. In an era where the challenges of mobility and climate change are omnipresent, FEEP sees the potential of this solution for its members. Remember that the FEEP signed the Pacte de l'école québécoise and is committed to promoting eco-responsibility in schools among its members. In recent weeks, other FEEP member establishments have confirmed their participation in the program for the next school year.
