On March 26, the Escouade de protection de l’intégrité municipale (EPIM) sent a written notice to Stationnement de Montréal’s management team, indicating that “this case is now closed and following this investigation, no criminal element was discovered”.

According to the documents recently made public, the investigation involved a possible conspiracy in the negotiation and award of the P$ Service mobile app contract, which has proven quite successful. Stationnement de Montréal would like to reassure all Montrealers that the persons involved have done absolutely nothing wrong, as confirmed by the results of this investigation.

The app was designed in collaboration with TC Media and the agreement with this company includes the sharing of income collected through transaction fees. These fees, totalling $0.40 per transaction, have enabled the app’s development, maintenance and management since its launch in June 2012. Once revenue-sharing and taxes have been deducted from said amount, $0.09 per transaction remains for promotional activities.

“That Stationnement de Montréal has been cleared of any wrongdoing following the results of this investigation comes as no surprise to us, said Charles Auger, General Manager of Stationnement de Montréal. We can now focus all our attention, with the help of our entire team, on pursuing our corporate mission and our ambitious development projects, for the benefit of public parking users and the City of Montreal.”
