Côte Saint-Luc, July 24, 2019 — On Thursday, July 25, 2019 at 1:30 pm, the first of two Communauto vehicles will be delivered to Côte Saint-Luc, in a dedicated spot in the parking lot of the Bernard Lang Civic Centre (5801 Cavendish Blvd.). A second vehicle will be stationed in the parking lot of the Côte Saint-Luc Shopping Centre later next month.
Communauto is a car sharing service. Members who join this service have access to a fleet of over a thousand cars that can be reserved at a low cost for a half-hour, an hour, a day or longer, according to their needs.
“We are thrilled to have Communauto finally available in Côte Saint-Luc, this answers the needs of many of our residents,” Mayor Mitchell Brownstein said. “Councillor Oren Sebag championed this dossier and we are happy to see the first vehicle delivered today. In our constant strive to better mobility issues for Côte Saint-Luc residents, this initiative is one more way to assist residents, reducing the number of cars on the road and allowing individuals to have cheaper options for transport.”
District 3 will be the first District to allow overnight parking of these vehicles and Communauto has extended its zone auto-mobile from Baily Road to Côte Saint-Luc Road and from Silverson Avenue to Pinedale Avenue to accommodate users.
“Car sharing alternatives needed to come to Côte Saint-Luc,” Councillor Sebag said. “We see young families wanting this option and this is an important step towards new, up to date improvement to our city, all while promoting sustainable mobility opportunities to our residents. I hope to see more mobility options available in the near future.”
