New parking meters are being installed on Penticton’s Main Street as the City begins implementing new parking policy.

Pay parking machines have been installed on the revitalized blocks of Main Street as part of the City’s expansion of its metered parking program, according to a City of Penticton media release.

The expansion is one of the City’s measures put in place to recoup revenue loss from the COVID-19 pandemic.

Paid parking is in effect Monday to Saturday from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. at a rate of $2 per hour, the City said. Residents seeking longer downtown parking options can purchase monthly or annual parking permits for city lots through the City Hall cashiers.

“We encourage residents to utilize and download the Passport Canada application for your smart phone to top up the meter from your device without returning to your vehicle to deposit coins,” Bylaw Services Supervisor Tina Mercier says in the release.
