Design, innovation, technology
Since its creation in 1995, the Société en commandite Stationnement de Montréal has been a major player in the development of operational solutions for urban travel.

Its Pay and Go system won the prestigious Award of Merit from the International Parking Institute in the category: Innovation in a parking operation or program.
At the service of the Ville de Montréal and its residents
Every year, Stationnement de Montréal pays the Ville de Montréal a good part of the revenue it earns from operating public parking.
