MONTREAL, July 7 /CNW Telbec/ - Marché Central wants to go further in promoting environmental initiatives that encourage the use of sustainable modes of transport. For this reason, the power centre is reserving 10 parking spaces for Communauto self-service vehicles. This is in addition to the recent introduction of the new STM bus line 19 - Chabanel/Marché Central, and the creation of new parking spaces for bicycles.
Ten spaces reserved for Communauto
Communauto users will now be able to park more easily when they come to Marché Central, thanks to their designated parking spaces. These spaces are located in front of or near the entrances to the following stores: Réno Dépôt, Globo, SAQ, Déco Découverte, Reitmans, Bowring, Thyme maternité and Mountain Equipment Coop, as well as in the underground parking near the Brick entrance. The spaces can be easily identified by signs and floor marking. All areas of the centre are now easily accessible to Communauto users.
Consumers will also find travel to the centre easier thanks to a new bus line in operation since June 21, 2010: line 19 - Chabanel/Marché Central. Ideal for movie evenings at Marché Central's Méga-Plex, this line, which runs between the Crémazie metro station and Marché Central, operates Monday to Friday from 8:20 p.m. to 12:45 a.m. At other times, public transit users can take the 100 and 179 lines, which operate from Monday to Sunday inclusively.
