Downtown Vancouver parking rates increase, city will replace old coin-only parking meters

Parking meter

The City of Vancouver has announced a slew of price changes for parking meters and garages.

Starting March, the hourly parking rate at existing pay stations in downtown Vancouver will increase to $1.25 per hour from 50 cents. Older, coin-only parking meters will remain at 50 cents an hour until they're replaced later this year.

On-street parking will stay free after 6 p.m. on weekdays, all day on weekends on all city-recognized holidays.

Parking rates will also increase at Vancouver Center Park 'n Go garage on West Sixth Street to $1.25/hour:


Daytime until 6 p.m.: $9

6 p.m. to close: $3.50

Full day: $12.50


$3.50 for the full day

The city will also replace its old coin-only parking meters with new pay stations that accept coins and cards. The new rate will be $1.25 per hour.

Officials are hoping the changes bring about lower maintenance and operational costs, improve customer experience and make parking self-sufficient.
