On-street Parking Rates Increase January 1, 2019

Release date: 
December 21, 2018

Effective January 1, 2019, on-street parking rates will see a moderate increase, as outlined in the 2018 amendment of the City’s Traffic Bylaw No. 23-30.

The increase will only affect metered on-street parking, and the new rates are as follows:

  • $1.50 per hour for the first two hours
  • $3 for the third hour

The City would like to remind residents that there are two convenient ways to pay for parking: at any one of the 96 pay stations in the downtown core (via cash or credit card) or by using the new Whoosh! app. The Whoosh! app allows residents to pay for parking from anywhere using a smart phone. There is no additional fee for using the app; drivers pay the same rate with the app as they would pay at the parking kiosk.

Downtown residential parking passes are also available for pickup at City Hall. The City would like to remind residents that Parking Services has relocated to the main floor of City Hall and can be accessed via the Victoria Street West entrance.
