Tournament Capital Centre Parking Improvements
Kamloops, B.C. – Earlier this spring, Parktoria Technologies, the supplier of the parking kiosks and back-end management system at the Tournament Capital Centre, declared bankruptcy.
While the City researched the feasibility of retaining third-party support services to continue the operation of the existing kiosks, it concluded that utilizing Precise ParkLink, which operates the downtown parking system, was the most cost-efficient and practical. Effective October 5, 2015, these Parking Stations will replace the old Parktoria kiosks.
The new TCC Parking Stations work the same as the downtown system with one notable difference – two hour parking is free for TCC and Hillside Stadium visitors.
Visitors must register their license plate into a Parking Station, which enhances the City's ability to manage parking lot misuse and improve parking availability for clients and guests. There are five Parking Stations located onsite, including one in the interior lobby of the TCC. Time limits are enforced and after two hours re-registration of a license plate into a Parking Station is required. TCC and Hillside Stadium visitors with a vehicle displaying a valid disabled parking permit can park for free and do NOT need to register their license plate into a Parking Station.
