Evolo Condos in Montreal
Here’s a blogger’s suggestion how to skirt the city’s parking meters that reset with every new user, even if there’s plenty of time on the clock.

This has been going on for a while. I see people leaving the little papers in the slot in the sign on the sidewalk at the parking spot. Anyway, how many people leave with time to spare? You paid for it. Stay there until it expires. And what about the next occupant? “Here’s 15 minutes of parking for free.”
“Thanks, but I’m going to see a movie, so I need to pay for two hours. I can’t add any time, nor do I want to continue my search for the perfect parking spot.”
Pointless. Motorists don’t pay enough to occupy that primo real-estate. Good on the city for this ingenious plan.
Is Stationnement de Montréal a private company that pays a fixed amount to the city, regardless of the profits they make?
From their website:
Since its creation in 1995, the Société en commandite Stationnement de Montréal has been a major player Originally founded to ensure the optimal management of municipal paid on-street and off-street parking, the Société was quickly recognized for its innovation, its advantageous use of cutting-edge technologies and the harmonious integration of its installations into the urban landscape.
Every year, Stationnement de Montréal pays the Ville de Montréal a good part of the revenue it earns from operating public parking. In 2010, Stationnement de Montréal has remitted to the Ville de Montréal more than $41.4 million for the benefit of Montrealers. Stationnement de Montréal employs 85 people, including 74 employees of the Ville de Montréal.
The city gets 30c of every dollar collected by Stationment Montreal. It’s just one more way that the Board of Trade makes money on the city’s back. They also control Bixi. They also control Tourisme Montreal.
