On Street Parking Information
Re-metering at a Paystation
Re-metering is not permitted Under the Parking Meter By-Law. If the vehicle has been parked in a metered space for more than the maximum time for which a fee may be paid for parking a vehicle in that metered space, the vehicle can be ticketed for meter overtime parking. To avoid receiving a ticket, be sure to move your vehicle through an intersection before parking and purchasing more time.
The Winnipeg Parking Authority provides paid on-street parking in the downtown and Exchange District areas of Winnipeg.
The majority of paystations in these areas allow for 2 hours of parking at a cost of $1 per hour in low demand areas (paystations denoted with red 2 hour stickers).
As part of a process of managing turn over at on-street parking spaces, there are higher rates of $2 per hour in parts of Downtown and The Exchange. The high demand areas (paystations denoted with bright green 2 hour stickers) are denoted in the map below.
Paid on-street parking is also available around the Health Sciences Centre and St. Boniface Hospital areas (paystations denoted with blue 4 hour stickers). Hospital area paystations allow for 4 hours of parking at a cost of $2 per hour.
Solar Powered Paystations Only
The Winnipeg Parking Authority operates solar powered parking paystations only. The WPA does not operate any other type of parking control device for on-street parking. WPA paystations are identified by the WPA logo on the sides of the portion of the paystation that holds the solar panel.
