Downtown Motorcycle Parking Available Again

The City of Calgary and the Calgary Parking Authority are making a special effort again this year to accommodate the growing number of people who choose to use motorcycles or scooters for their downtown commute.

Approximately 75 designated on-street parking stalls are now available for motorcycles and scooters until the fall. These stalls span five designated parking locations that include 3 Street S.W. south of 8 Avenue; 3 Street S.W. south of 2 Avenue; 7 Street S.W. north of 9 Avenue; 4 Avenue S.W. west of 5 Street; and 1 Street S.E. north of 4 Avenue.

These designated locations allow motorcycle and scooter operators to park all day weekdays for $2.50 per hour to a maximum of $8 and on Saturdays for $0.75 per hour to a maximum of $2.50.

The Calgary Parking Authority said the motorcycle and scooter parking spaces were well-used last year.
