Signage

The Ville de Montréal administers the regulation of parking spaces and the signs related to them. The site Info-Remorquage offers a detailed description of the numerous signs drivers can encounter on the streets of Montréal.

Attention! The presence of a parking sign and a parking meter does not automatically signify that parking is permitted at all times. You must always read the sign and make sure that parking is permitted at the time you wish to park.

The Pay and Go pay stations are programmed to inform the user, for each parking space, whether parking is free, prohibited or if the space is reserved.

To find out more about the advantages of the Pay and Go system, visit the Parking section.

The following is a brief reminder of the meaning of some of the signs related to parking.
