lol I made the mistake of parking right by the Bell Centre one time. It says like 10-15$ on the sign (can't remember exact amount may have even been 12$)
I pull in, 25$, was like wtf. Anyways in the end I just said **** it as the tickets were free so I just paid the 25$. Turns out the parking was in a good place to leave after the game anyways. Just kind of retarded, false adverts and such.
Hey guys, im going tomorrow at the Bell Center and i'd like to know if there is any cheap parking near the Bell Center!
Thanks in advance
3$ an hour (only till 9PM) if you park on the street. if you find one at 6:30, it's 7,50$.
Otherwise, there are a couple north of Rene Levesque, west of Peel... on streets like Bishop, McKay, etc. They are from 7-10$
Otherwise, you get "screwed" with the 20$ parking of the Bell center area and you also get stuck in that parking.
I would advise to park as far as you can, so that you are not stuck in the "post game traffic" which is unbearable. (well, for a habs fan, cause apparently in Ottawa, they'd be happy if it was "so little" compared to their highway-hell-jam)
Ya ~7.50$ street parking my favorite choice. No line ups getting out of a garage and free of retarded driving in close spaces. There's a park "Place du Canada" between Peel and Metcalfe where there's always a spot. My favorite place to park.
i work at bell center and this is the routine to find parking...game or no game i guarantee you will find and its max 10mins walk...free parking.
take st antoine heading west, turn left on lucien l'allier, look both sides, there is free parking.
just before st jacques turn right in the alley, take the next street back up to stantoine, this whole street is free parking too...then take the other street down back to stjacques...if you have not found anything yet, just go to stjacques and guy corner, and there are spots everywhere at this point.
this is my parking routine and i always find a spot, worst comes to worst i walk from guy...its like 6-7mins
bonus : if **** hits the fan, your car is safe from rioters
