A New Valet Parking Service Accessible to Everybody!
- No to be missed
Destination Centre-Ville presents a new valet parking service to help motorists navigate in downtown Montréal. To learn the schedule and the drop-off zones, check this post.
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.
Launch of a valet service near the construction zone
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).
Two drop-off points are available: at the corner of Sainte-Catherine Street and Mansfield Street, to the west, and at the corner of De Maisonneuve Boulevard and De Bleury Street, to the north.
Fixed rate: 12 $. This service is provided by VIP Valet.
A valuable commercial artery for downtown Montréal
“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.
