  • When parking in a Municipal lot you are required to display your permit at all times. If you do not have a permit you are required to purchase a receipt from one of the pay and display mastermeters located in the lot and display the receipt on your dashboard, not doing so will be subject to a parking infraction
  • Do you have a faulty meter, call 519-661-4537 with the meter number to report the problem



  • Always have change available prior to parking in order to avoid an infraction, payment is expected immediately upon arrival.
  • What you pay for parking depends on your destination and the walking distance from your parked vehicle.
  • It is a good idea to have an alternative lot in mind in case your first choice is full when you arrive.
