February 09, 2023

We are pleased to announce that the Town of Montreal West will become part of Communauto’s FLEX zone as of February 9, 2023.

Communauto is a Montreal-based car sharing company with a fleet of several thousand vehicles spread across 16 cities including Montreal, Quebec, Gatineau, Sherbrooke and Trois-Rivieres.

In addition to vehicles available by reservation (that must be picked up and dropped off at a fixed location), Communauto will extend their FLEX zone and provide their FLEX services without reservation in the central part of Montreal West, from Northview to Sherbrooke. The FLEX vehicles, noted by the word “FLEX” on the car door, are available 24/7, can be picked up steps from your location, and can be rented for a few minutes, an hour, a day or longer. When you’re done, you can drop off the car back in any FLEX zone across the island of Montreal.

Parking restrictions must be respected at all times, as laid out below:

  • All vehicles must respect all posted parking regulation signs including any temporary no parking signs for snow removal should they be posted in the event of a snow storm
  • Communauto FLEX vehicles are exempted from the Town of Montreal West’s overnight and four hour parking limitations
  • Fire hydrants and driveways should never be blocked
  • Drivers must ensure parking will be good for at least the next 24 hours

Our two reserved Communauto vehicles stationed in the Westminster municipal parking lot have served our community well and this new FLEX service will give residents more access to vehicles and usage flexibility. 

The Town is pleased to add another mode of transport to the existing array of public transit options to further contribute to the Town of Montreal West’s sustainability initiatives and to building a greener future.

Visit the Communauto website for more information on their services.
