From March 10 to 29, 2020
Marc H. Choko Scholarships
Contest organized by the Société des designers graphiques du Québec
As of March 10 in the Museum Atrium!
These posters on the theme “Public transit and active transportation”, were selected from among the submissions to the Société des designers graphiques du Québec (SDGQ) design competition for the Marc H. Choko Scholarships. This competition is open to students registered in a Quebec CEGEP or university graphic design program; its aim is to develop their skills and interest in poster design, while at the same time promoting a cause for the common good.
Our society is working to promote the development of alternatives to driving, including public transit and active transportation like cycling and scootering. Another objective is to facilitate interconnections between public transit and the cycling network. These efforts will require a major shift in travel habits and behaviours.
Mass transit has existed in Montréal for over 150 years. Montrealers have always enjoyed fast, reliable, economical transit service with tramways (from 1861 to 1959), buses (since 1919), the métro (since 1966) and paratransit service (since 1980).
For the past 50 years, Vélo Québec, a non-profit organization, has played a key role on the Quebec cycling scene. It works tirelessly to promote cycling—whether for recreation, tourism, or as a clean, active mode of transportation—to help the environment and improve public health and well-being.
