EPark Hours of Operation Extended on Event Nights
With the ongoing downtown development, the City is experiencing major changes in how and when people move in and out of the downtown core and surrounding neighbourhoods. In order to accommodate these changes and to minimize negative impacts on local residents and business owners, the City has made adjustments to the current parking rate structure.
Starting September 1, 2016, EPark hours of operation in downtown zones on Rogers Place event nights are from 6-10 pm at a rate of $3.50 per hour.
The two-hour parking restriction in these zones is increased to five hours on Rogers Place event nights. Downtown zones are all areas between Jasper Avenue and 107 Avenue, and 97 Street and 109 Street.
The affected EPark zones are from 97 Street to 109 Street and from Jasper Avenue to 107 Avenue. These extended hours will be in effect on Monday through Saturday evenings during Oilers and Oil Kings games and major events/concerts at Rogers Place. Visit to see when major events are taking place.
Existing daytime rates and free parking after 6pm on non-event nights, Sundays and holidays remain unchanged. EPark rates outside of this area also remain unchanged.
The hourly extension is intended to help balance the limited amount of on-street parking spaces with the high demand for parking by businesses, residents and visitors, as well as to encourage event-goers to use alternate means of transportation, such as transit.
Library and City Hall parkade rates will also be changing effective September 1, 2016. The Library Parkade evening maximum will increase to $10 every night. An evening maximum rate of $16 will be implemented at City Hall Parkade on event nights and a $1 per hour increase after 5pm will be implemented on non-event nights. Daytime rates are not changing.
