A New Valet Parking Service Accessible to Everybody!
Since March, a valet parking service is available to facilitate the parking on Sainte-Catherine Street, which is under construction. Lot 1 of the first phase of the work, located between De Bleury Street and Robert Bourassa Boulevard, is expected to continue until fall 2019.
To ensure that members with places of business in the sector concerned can continue to operate and, more importantly, remain accessible and attractive to the public, Destination Centre-Ville has decided to implement special measures to make parking in the sector easier.
A car-parking service has been available on weekends since March and will continue to be offered until the end of construction (From Thursday to Saturday, 9 AM to 9 PM).
One drop-off point is available: at the corner of Sainte-Catherine Street and Mansfield Street, to the west.
Fixed rate: 12 $. This service is provided by VIP Valet.
“We’re lucky in Montreal to have the longest, and soon the most beautiful, commercial artery in Canada. This is why it’s important that it remains accessible at all times for visitors to Montreal and people who work in the city or come to the city on business. We’re very pleased to be able to provide these services in collaboration with the Ville-Marie borough and the Ville de Montréal,” states Emile Roux, executive director of Destination Centre-Ville.
“The Ville de Montréal is proud to support initiatives that make life easier for Montreal’s residents, especially during construction work. Sainte-Catherine Street is a unique and vital artery in the city. It is a major events district where people come to dine, shop at the boutiques and take a leisurely stroll, ” says Robert Beaudry, head of economic and commercial development on the city’s executive committee.
In the coming months, Destination Centre-Ville may update these measures or develop new measures to respond to issues related to the modernization of Sainte-Catherine Street.
