Parking Meters

The City operates and maintains 308 electronic parking meters (two or three hour limit) and 11 pay and display units in the downtown core (Pim Street to Gore Street).

Meter payment is required between 8 a.m. and 6 p.m., Monday to Friday. The cost is $1.45 per hour in Queenstown (Pim Street to Dennis Street) and $1.45 per hour in the City Centre (Dennis Street to Gore Street).

Accessible parking permit holders and veterans (Poppy License Plates) are granted 2 hours free parking at meters in the downtown core.

Eleven solar-powered Pay and Display machines are located along Queen Street between East and March Street; three on the north side and one on the south.
The Pay and Display machines accept all Canadian and American coins, as well as MasterCard and Visa. The minimum payment for coins is 5 cents for three minutes, and the maximum is $2.50 for two hours. The minimum payment for use of a credit card is $1, and the maximum is $2.50 for two hours. 
Once payment has been inserted into the Pay and Display machine, a tag will be issued with an expiry time. The tag must be placed on the dashboard of the vehicle with the expiration time clearly visible.
If the time has not expired, the tag can be used at other municipal parking meters or Pay and Display machines. The tags cannot be used on private property or permit-only lots such as Bell Avenue or the International Lot.
