There is a fair amount of discussion and outrage about the City’s proposal to raise parking fees in the West End by over 600%. Consultation is ongoing this summer. (www.vancouver.ca/westendparking)
Note that most zones in Vancouver are at $38.18, while only Robson Street and the West End are currently at the highest rate of $76.37.
Just to ensure that people have the facts on the annual parking fees across Vancouver, we provide the fees for all of Vancouver here, for the record.
The parking permits are only valid in the permit parking area assigned. “For example, you cannot use a West End parking permit to park in the South Granville resident permit zone.”
Columnist/developer Michael Geller is advocating for the City raise parking fees across the City: http://www.vancourier.com/opinion/may-i-suggest-sage-advice-the-city-has-and-hasn-t-followed-this-year-1.2304370
However, the public would likely have many concerns about how the money is being spent.
