The Halifax Regional Municipality continues to monitor and respond to the rapidly evolving effects of COVID-19.
The municipality had suspended the enforcement of paid and hourly parking across the municipality in response to the COVID-19 outbreak. As the Province begins to ease restrictions and businesses resume operations, paid parking, hourly parking and enforcement will be resuming effective June 1, 2020.
Below is an update on impacted services:
Meters: All parking meters will be “on” and enforced effective June 1 in all areas across the municipality. HotSpot will be reactivated, and all meters will require payment. All bagged meters will continue to be enforced.
Time-restricted parking and loading: All time-restricted (1 hr., 2 hr. etc.) parking and loading zones (temporary or permanent) will be timed and enforced effective June 1. New temporary 15-minute parking zones have been installed to facilitate the short- term pick up needs of restaurants and other business.
Accessible Parking: Will continue to be fully enforced.
Permits: All parking permits expiring in March through to June will remain valid until customer service centres reopen. This includes monthly and residential parking permits. Parking Permit zones will be enforced. Once customer service centres reopen, next steps for parking permits purchasing and enforcement will be communicated on the website.
Tow-away zones and transit priority lanes: Will continue to be enforced.
