Laval metro parking lots to be part of paid parking pilot project

The agency operating commuter trains in the Montreal area won't confirm reports that the park-and-ride parking lots at two of Laval's metro stations will be part of the pilot project on paid parking.

Laval mayor Marc Demers had told council earlier this week that he learned that about 20% of the nearly 600 parking spots at the Cartier parking lot will be paid parking starting in the spring. Part of the de la Concorde parking lot will also be devoted to paid parking as part of the pilot project.

The AMT had said it would be going ahead with the pilot project at its incentive parking lots in Montreal and other cities. The results would be applied as of 2015.

    What a joke. Anything to make an extra buck. Do they want to promote public transit or not? I can foresee all parking AMT parking lots charging soon. This should not be allowed & people should refuse to pay this.
