Metered Parking/ Pay & Display

On-street, metered parking is available in many areas within a short distance of the hospital. The maximum length of stay is 3 hours. The cost for metered parking is $2 an hour between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m. from Monday to Saturday.

Please note: Vehicles may not be parked at meters longer than the maximum time allotted. Even if you have paid for extra time — you must move your vehicle. The set fine for "plugging the meters" is $25. The maximum length of stay posted helps to ensure that more people have the opportunity to use convenient, on-street parking spots. If you require a longer stay, please park your vehicle in a lot or garage.


Cancer Centre Parking

Overflow parking options for Cancer Centre patients are changing. Existing overflow parking at the Waterfront lot and Richardson Beach lot will continue, with added overflow parking permitted on Barrie Street and King Street. Overflow parking will no longer be available in City Park effective November 2019.

Parking spaces on lower George Street are reserved from Monday to Friday for patients of the Cancer Centre. The cost is $1 per hour or $5 for the day.

Vehicles parked from Monday to Friday in these reserved spaces must have both a valid patient permit and a Pay & Display receipt visible. On Saturdays, only a valid Pay & Display receipt is required. If you forget your patient permit, a replacement permit can be issued by the clerk at the hospital clinic.

If the George Street spaces are occupied, overflow options for Cancer Centre patients are available in the Waterfront parking lot and Richardson Beach parking lot at the foot of Barrie Street and King Street.

Overflow parking will also be permitted on a section of Barrie Street between King and Stuart and a section of King Street between Barrie and West. Overflow parking will no longer be available in City Park effective November 2019.

Both the parking lots, George Street and Barrie Street require displaying the following in parked vehicles:

  • Pay & Display receipt (or payment through HonkMobile).
  • Valid Cancer Centre permit.

King Street will require displaying a Cancer Centre permit only. Vehicles will be exempted from the posted time restrictions.

Pay & Display receipts for patients can be purchased from the Pay & Display machines on lower George Street as well as machines on Barrie Street. Patients can stay longer than the 3-hour maximum in both parking lots and on-street as long as a full day ($5) Pay & Display receipt and patient permit are both visible.

New as of fall 2019, patients can now pay using HonkMobile, offered in addition to existing payment options. Patients paying with HonkMobile can use the code 80000 to obtain the Cancer Centre parking rate and are required to display a valid permit while parked. Visit the HonkMobile page for more information.
