Parking Rate Increase

Please be advised that as of January 1, 2020, street parking rates will increase throughout New Westminster to $3.00/hour in the Downtown, Uptown, and Sapperton neighbourhoods, and to $2.50/hour for all other areas of the city. Rates have not increased in more than five years and the increase brings New Westminster parking rates more closely in-line with off-street (parkade) rates, transit fares, and other Lower Mainland municipalities. These changes have also been implemented to reflect the growing demand for limited on-street parking in our city, thereby encouraging sufficient parking turnover in busy commercial districts and supporting vibrant economic activity.

The approved rates include a Council-directed $0.25/hour Climate Action Levy to help offset the cost of programs and initiatives directly related to the City’s climate emergency response. Additionally, the rate increase aligns with the goals of our Master Transportation plan, encouraging people to choose sustainable transportation options such as walking, cycling, and transit whenever possible.
