As commercial activity ramps up across the city, parking fees in EPark zones and City-owned parkades will be reinstated Monday, June 8.
To promote parking availability during relaunch and recovery phases, the City will be reducing hourly parking rates in approximately 80 per cent of EPark zones. Paid parking helps encourage turnover in parking spots and ensures spots are available for businesses and their customers.
To support businesses that continue to utilize curbside pickup in their operations, the first 30 minutes of every parking session in curbside EPark zones will be free of charge. Users will have to register for their parking session through the MyEPark app or EPark machines to receive their first 30 minutes free.
The City encourages customers to use the
app as the safest way to pay for parking. The app allows users to manage their parking sessions through their smartphones without interacting with the EPark pay machine. If the MyEPark app is not an option and customers must use an EPark pay machine for payment, they are encouraged to wash or sanitize their hands before and after use. EPark machines are not sanitized by the City of Edmonton between each use.
