Half price parking for motorcycles and scooters resumes May 20

Effective Friday, May 20, 2011, the City of Ottawa will be re launching its half price motorcycle and scooter parking initiative within the City parkades located at:

- The ByWard Market Parking Garage, 70 Clarence Street; and,
- Ottawa City Hall Parking Garage, 110 Laurier Avenue West.

Since 2009, the City has offered half price motorcycle and scooter parking in the ByWard Market parking garage. The ByWard Market parkade has a separate entrance with a dedicated Pay and Display machine and 12 motorcycle/scooter-sized parking spaces. Spaces are also available at the City Hall parking garage although they are not configured specifically for motorcycles and scooters.

In addition to this, there is half price parking available year-round for motorcycles and scooters at all on-street and off-street Pay and Display machines. Motorcycle and scooter enthusiasts can take advantage of half price parking by pressing the grey motorcycle button to activate this feature.

The convenient, half priced parking is intended to encourage use of smaller, fuel-efficient forms of transportation.
