MONTRÉAL, June 5, 2019 /CNW Telbec/ - Stationnement de Montréal announced today that the company chosen to update its parking pay stations will be J.J. MacKay Canada Limited (MacKay Meters). The project is set to be carried out in phases from July to December of 2019.
This announcement follows the public tender process used by Stationnement de Montréal to select a firm for the project, which includes restoring and updating existing stations, replacing the management servers for the software platform and acquiring new pay stations.
"This mandate needs to be fulfilled now because of the risks associated with deteriorating electronic components within the equipment," said Charles Auger, General Manager of Stationnement de Montréal. "Having reached the end of their useful life, the stations can be restored to preserve the original housing while offering new payment modules with features designed for the future—all at a reasonable cost. Ultimately, it's the users who will benefit from the new stations and payment options."
The pay stations installed on Montréal streets are now over 15 years old, whereas their life expectancy was only 10 years. This longevity can be largely attributed to effective management of the current equipment.
