Some downtown Victoria parking restrictions came back in effect on Tuesday.
On Aug. 4 the city reinstated 90-minute restrictions in downtown parking zones, along with $2 per hour rates. Parking fees were lowered in April to alleviate costs during the COVID-19 pandemic. On-street parking was reduced to $1 per hour without limits.
Other COVID-19 parking adjustments have been extended, such as limitless, $1 per hour parking in all other metered areas, and reduced rates for Broughton Street, View Street and Johnson Street parkades.
Parking in those parkades will cost drivers back $1 per hour with the first hour free. View and Johnson Street parkades have a $9 daily maximum and Broughton Street Parkade has a $5 daily maximum.
Regular hourly rates for Yates and Centennial Square Parkades have been reinstated, with reduced daily maximum rates of $14.50.
Parking lot rates are still reduced at Royal Athletic Park, the Royal Theatre and Wharf Street.
