City Council approves by-law to pilot free parking for veterans

November 3 2020 –

Today, Vancouver City Council approved a by-law change that will give veterans free parking for one year as a pilot project.

Previously, veteran's plate holders were allowed to park for free in the week leading up to Remembrance Day.

Pilot program details

Starting November 3, drivers with veterans' licence plates can park for free at metered parking and EasyPark lots within Vancouver.

Veterans will still need to obey posted time limits, but can park for free during the allowed time.

Official, signed bylaws are typically posted within a few days of Council approving them.

Staff to report back fall 2021

Staff will monitor the pilot project and report back to Council in the fall of 2021 to report back on uptake and in consultation with veteran's serving organizations.
