Tickets and towing

Parking ticket on car windshield

Our parking enforcement officers patrol seven days a week on foot, by bicycle, and in vehicles.

Your vehicle can be towed if:

  •  You have broken a parking bylaw
  • Your vehicle has been abandoned, and is a safety hazard, or inconvenience to other motorists or pedestrians

The City of Vancouver has a contract with Busters to tow and impound vehicles from city streets and parks, under the Impounding Bylaw.
