Food trucks proved so popular last summer they will be returning to the streets of Montreal.
The city is still calling the arrangement a pilot project, which in its second year will run from May 1 until October 5.
Mayor Denis Coderre said that he hopes that many trucks will offer more affordable food, instead of the gourmet options that were demanded during the first year's run.
Mobile restaurateurs have until 11 a.m., April 4, to submit a bid -either online or at the Ville Marie Access Montreal offices--for a permit to operate a truck.
Some locations will be serviced every day, while others will only be open to trucks on weekends or for special events.
