A bit of good news for those who drive.
In an effort to encourage more people to head downtown Montreal during the festive season, Mayor Valérie Plante has announced street parking in the Ville-Marie borough will be free on weekends as well as weekdays from 6 pm to 9 pm during the holiday season.
“We hope that many Montrealers will come and support our downtown merchants for their holiday shopping,” said Montreal Mayor Valérie Plante in a press release. “Our merchants give the city its special colours and flavours. After another year marked by the pandemic, they need our support more than ever.”
Free street parking in downtown Montreal on evenings and weekends will begin on December 3 and will continue until January 2.
