You will have to pay more to park in Downtown Burlington starting today (April 2).

The new rates for on-street parking and in municipal lots have gone up to $2 an hour, a 25-cent increase. The daily maximum will jump from $14 to $18 and the monthly permits have increased from $83 to $91 and from $132 to $151.

Hourly and daily users can pay their parking fees through the HONK mobile app. Users do not have to download the app but can scan the QR code on parking lot signage to pay for parking.

The increase, the first in 10 years, is meant to encourage turnover which downtown businesses have been asking for. The additional fees will also help to pay for lot maintenance, infrastructure and resurfacing.

As well, you will now have to pay for on-street parking and in some downtown lots on Saturdays from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. Previously it has been free to park on Saturdays.

The three lots are: 1, 4 and 5.

  • Lot 1 – Pearl Street Lot, 431 Elizabeth St.
  • Lot 4 – Elizabeth Street Lot, 421 John St.
  • Lot 5 – Brant Street Lot, 391 Brant St.

Parking is free in most other Downtown Burlington lots, including the Waterfront Parking Garage at 414 Locust St., on weekends and holidays.

Users with a valid accessible parking permit or City-issued Veteran Parking Permit may still park in any space for free if the accessible spaces are occupied.
