The City of Pointe-Claire has announced that beginning March 9, 2020, a street parking area, identified as zone 50, will be reserved for Pointe-Claire residents around the Cedar, Pointe-Claire and Valois train stations.
This initiative aims to control access to street parking for public transport users and vehicle owners living in these areas, given the work underway to develop the Réseau express métropolitain (REM), as well as the planned closure on March 31, 2020, of the Mont-Royal rail tunnel, currently used by commuter trains on the Deux-Montagnes and Mascouche lines.
Accordingly, parking permits will be required and will be issued as of February 10, four weeks before the entry into force of this new zone, which will be reserved from Monday to Friday, between 7 a.m. and 10 a.m.
Residents who use public transit
This measure will give Pointe-Claire residents priority access to parking, in response to high daily traffic at the Cedar, Pointe-Claire and Valois train stations.
The permit will be available at a cost of $20 per vehicle and will be valid for two years.
Residents living in the new priority parking zone
It is recommended that those living in the zone reserved for permit holders obtain a permit for every vehicle to be parked on the street on weekday mornings.
The first permit for each address will be provided free of charge and will also be valid for two years.
