City of Ottawa Parking Rates

Where there are no other signs posted, the general parking limit on-streets is limited to a maximum of three hours from 7:00 am - 7:00 pm. Check the signed regulations and parking meter time limits. Long-term parking can be accommodated in City of Ottawa off-street parking facilities. Municipal parking is identified with the City of Ottawa coat of arms on a green shield incorporating a white "P" -the international symbol for public parking.

Parking Rates

The City of Ottawa has approximately 3500 on-street and 400 off-street parking meters. An information plate inside the meter dome gives you details about parking restrictions, time limits and the hours when parking is free. On-street, the dome colour and surrounding signs will give you additional information about time limits. Off-street, signs displaying rates and hours of operation are posted in every municipal lot. All parking meters accept 25¢, $1.00, $2.00 coins and the City of Ottawa Parking Card as methods of payment. Parking rates are 25¢ for 6 minutes at all on-street meters and 25¢ for 10 minutes in all metered lots.

Note: Free parking is available on weekends at City lots and meters located within the downtown core. This area is bounded by Elgin Street to Bronson Avenue and Wellington Street to Catherine Street.

The City of Ottawa operates several parking lots. All lots, enclosed or unenclosed, are identified with signs carrying the City of Ottawa logo and a white 'P' on a green background - the international symbol for public parking. All municipally operated parking lots offer long and short-term parking, while select lots offer monthly parking.

Generally, short-term rates at downtown parking facilities are 50¢ for 12 minutes, with the exception of the facility at 141 Clarence Street: 50¢ for 20 minutes. Short-term parking rates and monthly parking fees, which are set by City Council, vary depending on the location of the parking facility. All parking rates are subject to change.
