City launches free two-hour parking to support businesses in London’s core


To support local businesses affected by the COVID-19 pandemic and construction, the City is offering free municipal parking in London’s core throughout the summer. This comes in response to feedback and suggestions provided to the City’s Back to Business action team. 

Starting today, each vehicle will be eligible to receive two hours of free parking per day at all municipal on-street parking meters and municipal lots in London’s core, using the promotional code ‘B2B20’ on the HonkMobile app.

“The local businesses in our core area need an environment that allows them to thrive, and the current pandemic has made things less than ideal for local business owners,” says Mayor Ed Holder. “Through this initiative, I hope to see Londoners taking advantage of the complimentary parking promotion to shop local in our community.”

Signs will be posted at pay park stations where the free municipal parking is available. For more information about where free parking is being offered and how to access it with the HonkMobile app, visit london.ca/freecoreparking. The free parking will be available while businesses continue to work through reopening and recovery.

As part of the City’s Back to Business initiative, City staff are working with London’s BIAs to better understand the needs of businesses during this time. Businesses throughout the City with requests related to reopening can submit them via email at b2b@london.ca.
