New park­ing sys­tem next week for CIUSSS

Sherbrooke Record - - LOCAL NEWS - Record Staff

New park­ing me­ters in the park­ing lots of the CIUSSS de l'es­trie CHUS will be in­stalled as of next week, be­tween Oc­to­ber 16 and 26. These de­vices will change the us­age pat­terns of users and vis­i­tors and will in­clude the elim­i­na­tion of booths.

In ad­di­tion, the me­ters will al­low the trans­fer­abil­ity of park­ing per­mits from one fa­cil­ity to an­other as pay­ment will be as­so­ci­ated with the ve­hi­cle rather than the space, a press re­lease says. Users will also be able to use a mo­bile ap­pli­ca­tion to pay for or add time to their per­mit with­out hav­ing to go back to the me­ter.

These changes will take place on Oc­to­ber 17, 18 and 19 at the Fleu­ri­mont and Hô­tel-dieu, hos­pi­tals.

In ad­di­tion to sig­nage, in­struc­tions and the "help" but­ton on the park­ing me­ters, peo­ple will be present in the park­ing lots for a month where the new me­ters will be in­stalled in or­der to fa­cil­i­tate the tran­si­tion for users.

As of the date of in­stal­la­tion, the blue signs that are cur­rently cov­ered will be­come ap­pli­ca­ble. "Users who do not com­ply with the new rules are sub­ject to a fine is­sued by ex­ter­nal sup­pli­ers that the CIUSSS of the East­ern Town­ships - CHUS will not have the power to can­cel," the re­lease con­tin­ues.

New park­ing rates al­ready in force and the ad­di­tion of seven paid park­ing lots through­out the ter­ri­tory follow the in­tro­duc­tion of a new pol­icy on park­ing and sus­tain­able mo­bil­ity adopted on April 1, which took into ac­count the min­is­te­rial re­quire­ment that park­ing should be self-fi­nanc­ing, the en­vi­ron­ment and lo­ca­tion of the fa­cil­i­ties, the types of care and ser­vices pro­vided, the prin­ci­ple of fair­ness to users and mem­bers of the in­ter­nal com­mu­nity who have to ob­tain a per­mit to use the park­ing lot.
