Modernizing pay-parking stations

Pay-parking stations are being modernized to make greater use of technology so patients and visitors can manage their parking without returning to their vehicles or using a meter.

  • Health authorities are introducing touch-free payment options and apps to make the process safer and convenient.
  • For people without a smartphone or who choose not to use an app, additional parking terminals have been installed in common areas of some acute-care hospitals and other locations so parking can be managed without returning to a vehicle.
  • Health authorities will continue using methods that were already in place to allow free parking such as dash passes, e-coupons or reimbursement.
