Accessible On-Street Pilot Program & Survey

Last update: February 1, 2019

The Winnipeg Parking Authority is implementing a pilot program of up to 40 permits, allowing participants the ability to park for an unlimited amount of time in paid on-street parking locations around City Hall, the Centennial Concert Hall, and the East Exchange, while adhering to all on-street parking regulations. A lottery will be held to select up to 40 permits holders who are able to participate in the pilot program.

The City of Winnipeg is interested in learning more about on-street parking barriers faced by motorists with accessibility requirements. Please take five minutes to complete a survey on paid parking needs. Your feedback will assist in determining accessible on-street parking needs in the downtown and the development of a long-term plan to address the on-street parking needs. The project team will be collecting feedback until May 31, 2019.
