As the demand for on-street parking grows, we have introduced regulations under our parking by-laws in more areas of the city.
This helps to maintain the flow of traffic and make sure parking space turnover in busy areas.
So park smart—know the top parking laws, and avoid getting a ticket or towed.

Street & Traffic Bylaw
Regulates traffic, the use of streets, and the size and weight of vehicles that are permitted to travel on City of Vancouver streets.
Items such as pylons, cones, buckets, and private No Parking signs are not permitted to reserve street parking. We may remove these items from city property without warning.
Report a broken meter
Do not park at a broken parking meter. You will get a ticket.
Report a broken meter online and:
- Provide the six-digit meter number located on the side of the meter
- If you lose money in the broken meter, we will provide a credit of up to a $2 worth of parking
