Announcements and Events

The City of Ottawa now provides free parking during winter weather parking bans at select parking spots at these Park and Ride locations:

  • Riverview Park and Ride (map)
  • Innovation Park and Ride (map)
  • Chapel Hill Park and Ride (map)
  • Nepean Woods Park and Ride (map)

When a winter weather parking ban is called, residents will be allowed to park their vehicles in designated parking spaces at these OC Transpo Park and Rides. This is in addition to free parking already offered overnight during parking bans at select parking garages.

The four locations were chosen as they have additional capacity to provide this service without impacting transit customers. The locations will be monitored throughout the remainder of the winter.

During a winter weather parking ban, residents are reminded that there is no parking on city streets so that crews can plow easily and effectively. Vehicles parked on the street during a winter weather parking ban may be ticketed and towed. On-street monthly parking permit holders are exempt from this restriction when they are parked in residential parking permit zones. Follow us on Twitter @ottawacity or sign up at to received updates on when a winter weather parking ban will be in effect.
