  • Continue a few more metres: a gate entrance to the parking lot is on your left. Enter the parking lot here.

Option 2: Follow the roadway in front of the hospital until you reach the STOP sign at the end.

  • Turn left, then immediately turn left again, following the ramp down to the underground parking lot.

How to access the hospital from the parking lot

You can access the Montreal Children’s Hospital from the underground parking lot without having to go outside. There are:

  • entrance doors to the hospital on Level P1 (corresponding with Level S1 in the hospital)
  • elevator access to the hospital from Level P2
  • stair access to the hospital from Level P3 and P4 

Paying for parking

To reduce the delay to exit, the parking fees should be paid at a payment kiosk, with the white ticket, BEFORE arriving at the exit. The white ticket will be required to open the gate at the exit.

Payment kiosks, which accept Visa, Mastercard, Debit and cash are located on:

  • Level P1 (corresponding with level S1 in the hospital) outside the Children’s Emergency entrance, and
  • Level P2 in front of the elevators that lead up to the hospital.

The Parking Desk (A.RC.1000) in the Larry and Cookie Rossy Promenade accepts Visa, MasterCard, and payment by Interac.

You can also pay for daily parking rates by credit card (Visa, MasterCard) or Debit card at the exit gate when you leave the parking lot.
