The City of Victoria operates five parkades downtown which are open 24/7 and offer more than 1,800 parking spaces.

Pay by Space - Coming Soon to City Parkades!

Following the success of the Johnson Street parkade pay by space pilot, the City will continue to make downtown parking easier by rolling out the same payment system to all City parkades.

City parkade rates will also be streamlined at all pay by space parkades to $2/hour and willl offer an additional hour of free parking in the morning to make parking free from 6 p.m. to 9 a.m. each day. Sundays and holidays will continue to be free. To ensure free parking is still available for short-term use, 1-hour free parking spaces will be available on the lower floors near the entrance.

The pay by space system requires drivers to pay when they park using the ParkVictoria app or a pay station, similar to on-street parking. Parkade users will no longer need to collect a ticket upon entry to the parkade or pay when they exit. Stay tuned for more updates on the pay by space rollout!
