“The goal of this measure is to encourage people to move their vehicles as quickly as possible to facilitate snow removal and snow loading operations,” explained Charles Auger, general manager of Stationnement de Montréal.

The rules are simple: as soon as the city of Montreal orders the loading of snow, residents may park their vehicles free of charge in designated parking lots as of 6 p.m. They must be sure to park only in designated spaces, avoiding areas reserved for permit holders. They must also remove their vehicles from the parking lots by 7 a.m. the next day, when regular parking operations will resume.
