    Default downtown parking

    hey guys

    i was just wondering, for those of you who work downtown. do you actually drive your car down there every day? if so, where do you park and much do you pay?

    thanks

    if you park on the streets make sure you're allowed to after 3:30pm. I just had my van towed last night... doh! Costed me just over $100.00 for the tow and the ticket.

    You pay them, and they give it to you .

    Their payment office is under the Calgary Tower.

    My rental car was towed once when I was in TO. I read the parking meter and it was in effective from 8am-3:30pm, so I parked there. But what I didn't read was the big street sign that says no parking during rush hour (3:30pm-6:00pm)!!! double DOH! I think I even put more money in the meter!!!

    Impark bill me monthly from my CC, you need 3 month notice to cancel a monthly pass. You don't have to go down to their office each month.

    I drive downtown everyday, and it cost me $107 a month for my impark pass at the Holiday Inn.

    Try the following links to locate a lot near you:

    Depending on where you work and how far you're willing to walk will determine your cost of parking. There are a number of options. Look at it this way, if you were to take the train every day it would cost $6o bucks for a month pass. If parking costs you 150, then really your only out an extra 90 for getting to drive everyday.

    Depending where you are there is still some free stuff around. I found some stuff on 10th ave for $60-$70. The closer to the heart the more it's going to cost you.

    I save the 2-3 hundred/mo by riding my (pedal) bike to work downtown. Zero $$$ + park at building + exercise =
