Parking in Montreal
The role of paid on-street parking is to facilitate visits to institutional and business districts by promoting the sharing of parking spaces.
By limiting authorized parking time in very busy districts, paid on-street parking allows many drivers to use the same parking space in succession and thus, promotes better vehicle turnover and smoother traffic flow.
Montreal has four rate zones, in service every day of the week. Chargeable periods are established to stimulate vehicle turnover during business hours.
Watch out for mini-posters and instructions on parking signs and parking meters. Exceptions can apply: also check all parking signs at the place you park.
There are a plenty of garage parking options available in and around the city. One may choose to park in a garage if the parking requirement is for more than just an hour or two. Parking Garages are highly suitable for both short and long term parking requirements.
