Town of Canmore

Paid Parking & Fare Free Transit

October 5, 2021

Council approved the implementation of a paid parking program for the Town Centre in 2022. Administration is making changes to the original program that was approved in 2019 based on learnings from paid parking at Quarry Lake and in the Town of Banff. Details on the updated program will be available in Q1 2022.


Paid parking and fare-free transit are two strategies outlined in the Integrated Parking Management Plan. For more information on the development of the plan visit the Integrated Parking Management webpage
