Rejoice: Montreal Has Decided To Extended Its Free Weekend Parking Downtown

Exciting news for all of the city's courageous drivers: parking in Montreal's Ville-Marie borough will continue to be free for the month of March.

On Friday nights after 6 p.m. and weekends, that is.

The press release tells us, "The City of Montréal announces that it is extending free on-street parking in the borough of Ville-Marie, on Friday evenings, starting at 6 p.m., and on weekends, from March 1 to 31, 2021."

Free parking downtown measures were originally announced back in October 2020, as a way to support local shops during the holiday season.

Supporting the local economy remains the reason for the extension until March 31, 2021.

"In the difficult context we are experiencing and the particular situation of the downtown area, this measure is being extended in the Borough of Ville-Marie to support organizations, merchants, businesses and, more broadly, the Montreal economy."

If you get crazily confused about which parts of downtown actually count as Ville-Marie, we made a handy little map for you to check out here.

Hopefully, this means a lot fewer parking tickets for Montrealers in the month of March!
