Downtown Employee Off-Street Parking Permit Program
The City of Vancouver desires to promote downtown employee parking at off-street parking facilities, long-term metered or monthly permit parking stalls, or use alternative transportation modes such as bike or bus.
The City of Vancouver has received comments from downtown business representatives that downtown municipal garage parking rates are prohibitive for hourly-wage employees who drive their vehicles to work.
In partnership with Vancouver’s Downtown Association (VDA), The City of Vancouver is establishing a pilot parking program for downtown hourly-wage employees to gather data about their parking habits, needs, and experience.
During the pilot program period, the City of Vancouver will provide up to 20 parking permits to downtown hourly-wage employees to park at the VancouverCenter Garage at a reduced permit rate. The pilot monthly parking permit fee will be set at $30.00 per month.
Hourly wage employees working in the downtown who are interested in participating should make an appointment with Vancouver’s Downtown Association (VDA) representative to receive an application and present a recent pay stub to VDA for authentication.
Participants will submit the completed and signed application and agreement forms along with the required fee payment to City of Vancouver Customer Services and receive a parking permit for the garage.
Participants in the program must complete and return a survey at the end of the pilot program period.
