Moncton’s AVENIR Centre is now a reality!

Downtown Moncton Centre-ville Inc.’s (DMCI) priority for the past decade has been advocating for the construction of Moncton’s Downtown Centre. After years of lobbying with our governments, DMCI is happy to see that Moncton’s AVENIR Centre  is now a reality.

Getting to and from Events Centre – Choose your Best Option!

The City of Moncton, DMCI, SMG and the Moncton Wildcats launched the My Best Option campaign, aimed at providing patrons to the new Events Centre with transportation options to get to and from Centre.

The campaign, which includes the www.mybestoption.ca website, provides event goers with a user-friendly portal to discover multiple low-cost and free options.

The options include free on-street parking, paid parking (in both city and privately-owned lots), a designated drop-off zone for those with mobility challenges, on-site accessible parking, public transit, walking, biking and more.

Over 3,400 free and paid parking spots are available in Moncton’s downtown.  As well, Codiac Transpo’s Blue and Green lines – with one-way fare set at only $2.50 – stop quite literally at the Centre’s front door.

Downtown Transportation Dispersal Plan

Following the construction of a new downtown event centre, the City of Moncton has initiated the development of a transportation dispersal plan in response to the anticipated transportation demand.
