As a trial to accommodate more people more efficiently, two public parking lots have transitioned to four hour
time restricted parking between the hours of 8:00 am and 6:00 pm.
These parking lots are next to the ROAM transit stop on 9th Street, and are shown in the image below (green).
This initiative aims to make parking available to customers and visitors, while encouraging more suitable areas
for all-day uses such as park-an-ride for shuttle services, transit, and carpooling.
All day parking between the hours of 8:00 am and 6:00 pm, if required, is available in a number of areas in close
proximity to the four hour parking lots.

This change will remain in effect through the fall to allow for evaluation as part of the Town of Canmore Parking Study. A report will be prepared for Council and the results of this study will be shared with the community. Through this work, recommendations for time restrictions and other parking policy will be made for 2017 and beyond.
