What participants have to say

What prompted me to become a volunteer for the Trottibus is the idea of spending time with kids, keeping fit, starting my day on the right foot, and giving parents a helping hand.

Huguette, retired volunteer

For me, it's the idea of having a routine, because when you’re retired, it's easy to let yourself go and do nothing ... so in the morning, I wake up early, go outside with the kids, get back home at 8:30 am, and still have the whole day ahead of me.

Michèle, retired volunteer

Everyone knows each other on the 1.2 km route that we walk – the children, the parents and the locals. The Trottibus brings people together.

Paul, volunteer dad
