New On-Street Metered Parking Initiative

The City of London is pleased to announce a convenient new on-street parking initiative designed to benefit parking customers who purchase Pay n Display receipts. This new program will allow Londoners to use the receipt at other on-street metered parking spots until the expiration time noted on the receipt. 

Meter time may be purchased at any on-street Pay n Display parking meter and used again at any on-street Pay n Display or individual meter as long as the receipt has time remaining. The receipt must be displayed so that the expiry time is visible on the dashboard of the vehicle and parking signs must be followed.

Please note:

  • Receipts purchased at master meters in off-street City Parking lots cannot be used at on-street metered areas
  • All on-street signage must be adhered to
  • Pay attention to the time limits posted on each meter
  • Pay attention to the time the receipt expires
  • On-street receipts have red text indicating they are valid at all on-street metered areas only. These receipts are not valid in off-street parking lots
