Yes, you can pay for your on-street parking by using a computer with an Internet connection by visiting the Web site at pservicemobile.ca
It is possible that the pay station might have run out of paper, which does not mean you can't pay for a parking space. To find out whether the transaction has been accepted and what your parking expiry time is, you can call Stationnement de Montréal customer service for information at 514-868-3737. 12. If I want to prolong the length of my parking time, can I pay at any pay station?
You can pay for your parking space at any pay station where the letters and numbers of your parking space appear on the keyboard. The same letters are generally used in a sector with a three- or four-block radius. However, you must wait for your original parking time to expire before a new payment can be made. 13. I paid for an hour, and then, after all, I realized I needed two hours. Can I immediately pay for another hour?
No, time is not cumulative with the new pay stations and time is counted from the start of each new transaction. You have to wait until your original time has expired to prolong it. 14. After entering the letters and numbers of my parking space, the pay station displays "réservé" and I can't pay. Why?
The pay station displays "réservé" on the screen when an organization has taken out a permit for the occupation of public property to rent on-street parking spaces. The pay station will therefore not accept payment. 15. Can I still park if there is a coin stuck in a parking meter?
We strongly urge you to change parking spaces, because a parking ticket can be issued to counter vandalism. In this situation, we suggest you call customer service at 514-868-3737 to alert us that equipment is defective and so we can send a technician to repair it as soon as possible. 16. If a pay station is out of order and won't accept payment, can I leave my car parked where it is and not get a ticket?
When a pay station is out of order, you must pay at another station on the other side of the street or somewhere nearby. Non-payment for your parking space can result in a parking ticket. In this situation, we suggest you call customer service at 514-868-3737 to alert us that equipment is defective and so we can send a technician to repair it as soon as possible.
