Only five boroughs, the Plateau-Mont-Royal, Rosemont-La-Petite-Patrie, Côte-des-Neiges-Notre-Dame-de-Grâce, the Sud-Ouest and Verdun, allow their citizens to benefit from self-serve vehicles on their territory.
Yet, these services cost nothing to taxpayers and can even generate revenues for boroughs, since car-sharing companies pay for the universal parking pass that allows users to park easily in participating neighbourhoods.
The Coderre Administration has prevented the spread of self-serve vehicles for too long. Mayors of other boroughs continue to refuse permission for this simple, environmentally friendly, and inexpensive service, a key part of the transportation cocktail, to operate on their territory.
This has lasted long enough. Let’s demand that Mayor Coderre authorize self-serve car-sharing across Montreal.
