Montreal centre-ville

On September 30th, the Agence de mobilité durable, in collaboration with the CIty of Montréal, has announced the launch of a new mobile application aims to improve drivers’ experience and alleviate parking issues, especially in the context of the redevelopment of Sainte-Catherine Street, the P$ Montréal Centre-Ville app!

This new mobile application, called P$ Montréal Centre-Ville for the purpose of the pilot project, seeks to reduce search time, as well as improve the experience and downtown parking offer, mainly around Sainte-Catherine Street West.

Following a survey conducted by Montréal centre-ville, one of the main improvements desired by the majority of merchants (54%) is greater accessibility to the street for drivers.

In order to take greater advantage of the parking offer already available in private parking lots, users will now be able to take advantage of Sainte-Catherine Street West on-street parking rates at several nearby indoor garages managed by Indigo.

Users will automatically get the reduced rate for two hours (between 11 a.m and 9 p.m everyday during the week) without any action required on their part.

12,500 off-street parking spaces in the Sainte-Catherine Street West sector are available, which are 70% used on average. With this new application, accessibility will be made easier. In particular at the following parking lots:

  • Place Montréal Trust – 1500 McGill College
  • 1250 René-Lévesque – 1250, boulevard René-Lévesque Ouest
  • Tour KPMG – 600 boulevard De Maisonneuve Ouest

In total, there are more than 500 additional parking spaces, in addition to those on the street. In addition, the Agency indicated that several potential partners, owners of private parking lots, have also indicated their interests in participating in the project.

Thanks to the new features of P$ Montréal Centre-Ville, users will be able to:

Log in with the same information as P$ Mobile Service;

View the Agency’s and its partners’ parking offer, its location on a map, and the applicable rates by sector;

Plan their trips;

Pay on-street rates in participating lots/garages;

Use the navigation tool to reach their destination;
