Free rush-hour parking at TTC lots ends
after March 31



At its August 27 meeting, the Toronto Transit Commission approved a system-wide cash-only pricing policy for its commuter parking lots. Starting Wednesday, April 1, Metropass holders, including subscribers to the TTC’s Metropass Discount Plan and Volume Incentive Plan can no longer park for free at TTC commuter parking lots.

The TTC loses about $4 million annually because Metropass users occupy 80 per cent of all parking spaces. It operates about 14,000 parking spaces at 30 commuter parking lots across the city. Parking fees after April 1 vary from lot to lot, but you can pay all fees by cash or credit card. Many lots still offer free parking after 3 p.m. Mondays to Fridays and all day Saturdays, Sundays and weekends.


Transit journalist, Ed Drass, writing in Metro, reports on the end of free commuter parking in TTC lots. You can read Ed’s article here.
