Access to Paid Parking Spaces for Self-Service Vehicles: A New Mobility Option for Downtown Montreal

Montréal, Québec, September 9, 2020 – Communauto, the Agence de mobilité durable (the “Agency”) and the City of Montréal today announced the launch of a pilot project that will allow users of  Communauto FLEX’s self-service vehicle, without reservation, to finish a trip downtown on a paid parking space.

For a few days now, a first group of users has been experimenting with this option in the perimeter  between Viger Avenue, Sherbrooke, St-Hubert, and Guy streets. To take advantage of this option, participants in the pilot project use the Communauto app to indicate the number of parking space used. They are then allowed to release their vehicle for a flat rate of five dollars ($5.00).

If this first test phase proves successful, all users of Communauto’s FLEX service will have access to this option by the end of September. In Montreal, where demand for car sharing is growing rapidly, Communauto’s fleet, already more than 2,000 vehicles, has grown this year by nearly 400 units, to which 80 new units will be added during the month of September.
