As with many cities in Canada, the City of Prince Albert has parking meters located on city streets in the downtown core. One purpose of these parking meters is to encourage motorists to move their vehicles within a prescribed time period, allowing for a constant turnover of parking availability for incoming motorists.
The time limits for meters on the streets of Prince Albert vary depending on their location and provide for either two- or five-hour parking. See the Parking in Downtown Prince Albert brochure in the left menu to learn, among other things, where the various five-hour meters are located downtown. All meters are black except for those designated as handicapped parking meters which are blue.
Parking meters accept quarters, dollar and two dollar coins and parking meter cards. The meters are in operation during the following times:
- Monday through Friday - 9:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m.
- Saturdays - two hours of free parking
- Sundays and statuatory holidays - free parking
The Bylaw Enforcement Department monitors the City's enforcement of all parking bylaws. You can view the Traffic Bylaw and any amendments on the Bylaws page.
