Tickets and towing
The City of Vancouver's parking bylaws help to ensure everyone’s safety and convenience.
The City tickets and tows vehicles to:
- Maintain the flow of traffic, particularly during rush hour
- Ensure parking space turnover in high-demand areas
- Simplify parking for residents in their neighbourhoods
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 Impounding Bylaw 3519.
