Parking rates downtown to jump Nov. 13

  • Print

Parking rates are set to double in high-demand areas downtown starting Nov. 13.

City of Winnipeg officials said hourly parking rates are set to rise from $1 to $2 at 143 paystations downtown and in the Exchange. The paystations will be clearly marked to differentiate them from other paystations.

All 667 on-street paystations will be programmed and upgraded to allow them to accept new loonies and toonies. Once a coin acceptor has been upgraded, a decal will be applied adjacent to the coin slot to flag that the machine can accept the new coins.

In July, city council voted to restrict on-street parking to two hours and raise rates on high-use downtown streets from a loonie to a toonie per hour. The move is expected to free up more on-street parking in the downtown area. Winnipeg is poised to start metered parking one hour earlier, at 8 a.m., and extend metered parking to 8:30 p.m. in selected blocks around the MTS Centre.

Next April, the city will start metered parking one hour earlier at all on-street paystations, and extend downtown evening metered parking until 8:30 p.m.
