Paid Parking to Begin in Streetsville

The City of Mississauga is implementing paid parking in areas of Streetsville beginning Monday, January 8, 2018. Parking occupancy surveys completed in Streetsville in order to confirm parking demand and occupancy rates revealed high on-street parking occupancy rates, minimal vehicle turnover, and limited availability of convenient parking in the core of Streetsville. To this end, paid parking helps manage parking demand, encourage parking space turnover, and alleviate traffic congestion that is caused when drivers are required to circle to locate an available parking space. Paid parking encourages quicker turnover of parking spaces and long-term parking to occur in off-street parking lots. Paid parking also creates revenue to offset high costs related to parking infrastructure maintenance and new parking facility developments. Parking charges have been used as a parking management tool for parking in the Downtown, Clarkson, Cooksville and Port Credit for many years.

Paid parking in Streetsville is being implemented in two phases. The first phase includes Queen Street South between Barry Avenue and Kerr Street and Municipal Parking Lot #9 located at Queen Street and Pearl Street:
• Queen Street South on-street paid parking is in effect from:
Monday to Saturday from 10 a.m. to 9 p.m.
• Sunday from noon to 6 p.m.
• Off-street paid parking in Municipal Parking Lot #9 is in effect from:
Monday to Saturday from 6 a.m. to 9 p.m.
Sunday from noon to 6 p.m.

The cost for parking on-street and in Municipal Parking Lot #9 is $1.50 per hour for the first two hours and $2 for the third hour. Parking is allowed in these locations for a maximum of three hours.  If you’re unsure as to how to use the paid parking machines, the instructions are as follows:

Coin Payment

  1. Deposit coins in the coin slot until the screen displays the amount of time you would like to park.
  2. Press GREEN print button to obtain payment ticket. This is the confirmation of your transaction.

Credit Card Payment

  1. ​Insert your credit card (stripe facing down and right) and remove it quickly.
  2. Press the blue button on the left to purchase time in 25¢ increments until the screen displays the amount of time you would like to park. (Press the blue button on the right for the maximum time allowed)
  3. Press GREEN button to obtain payment ticket. This is the confirmation of your transaction.

Ticket Display Instructions

  1. Remove your receipt from the slot at the bottom right of the machine.
  2. Display your receipt on your dashboard with the expiration time facing up.

The City’s Municipal Parking team worked closely with the Streetsville Business Improvement Area (BIA) on the implementation of a paid parking plan. Parking Staff will bring forward a corporate report to General Committee in 2018 for phase two of paid parking in Streetsville.
