Getting Around

Information on parking, transit, cycling, the downtown indoor walkways and more to help you get around downtown Winnipeg.

Downtown Winnipeg is a destination with thousands of parking spots, easy access to Transit, plus a growing cycling network.

On-Street Parking

There are more than 3200 on-street parking spots throughout downtown and now it costs you less to park!  The Downtown Winnipeg BIZ represented members during the 2020 City budget process to speak to the challenges many businesses have faced around parking.  This advocacy led to a $0.75 reduction in hourly parking rates, effective July 1, 2020, and a commitment to a city parking strategy by 2021.

Current on-street rates:

  • Monday – Saturday: $1.75 – $2.75/hour from 8 a.m. – 5:30 p.m.

Complimentary on-street parking:

  • Monday – Friday: one-hour complimentary
  • Saturdays: two hours complimentary
  • Monday – Saturday: Free from 5:30 p.m. – 8 a.m.
  • Sundays: Free all day
  • Curbside pick-up locations (indicated by a bright pink curb and signage) – 15 minutes complimentary

The complimentary parking can be combined with paid parking. For example, if you need to park on the street on a Saturday for more than two hours, you may park for free for the first two hours, and then pay at the meter or on the PayByPhone mobile app for additional time.  You may also pay for the first two hours and then stay for an additional two hours complimentary.
