Where can I park with a FLEX vehicle in Montreal?
Zones reserved to holders of a resident parking permit
You can park in the areas reserved for holders of a resident parking permit when you are inside the service area (except zones 103 (Plateau-Mont-Royal), 131 (Rosemont), 143 (CDN-NDG), 333 (Mercier-Hochelaga-Maisonneuve) and 363 (Sud-Ouest) which are reserved to other Communauto vehicles). However, you must respect the signage, just like any other driver.
FLEX Service Area
At the end of your trip, FLEX cards must always be released inside the service area, curbside (on public property), in a non-metered location (except for exceptions: Learn more).
Street Cleaning Zones
You are allowed to release a vehicle in a street cleaning zone (in force from April 1 to December 1), at the end of your trip, provided that it is allowed to park the vehicle there until the end of the next day (11:59 p.m.).
FLEX Drop-off Points
- FLEX drop-off points are designated parking spaces, on or off street, that are generally outside of the service area but where it is still possible to start or end a trip with a FLEX vehicle.
- Parking icons on the map are clickable. Click on an icon to find out additional information on a specific FLEX drop-off point.
- Before going to a FLEX drop-off point, check on the Communauto app if parking is authorized or if specific rules apply. For example, some drop-off points may be closed during road work or if a snow removal operation is in progress.
- Curbside FLEX drop-off points are exempt from street cleaning parking restrictions usually in effect from April 1 to December 1.
