FlexParking - pay once, park anywhere!
The City's FlexParking system makes paying for parking easy in Saskatoon. Simply purchase parking from any FlexParking station or by using the WayToPark app and your paid session is valid at any public parking space across Saskatoon. View the map!
For example, if you purchase three hours of parking at a Downtown FlexParking station at 10:00am, you can finish your business Downtown and move to Riversdale, then Broadway, then any other FlexParking parking area until your session expires at 1:00pm. Please note that your session does not pause while you are driving.
FlexParking stations accept:
- Coins (quarters, loonies, and toonies)
- Credit Cards (Visa and MasterCard)
- City Parking Cards (available at the City Hall Payment Centre cashiers)
- WayToPark App Payment
Parking shouldn't be a hassle. The WayToPark app eliminates the need of going to a FlexParking station to pay for parking. Instead, you can pay directly from your smartphone!
The app contains a variety of features that allow users to enter and save multiple license plate numbers, print or view receipts and also extend current parking sessions. WayToPark is available for download on both iOS (App Store) and Android (Google Play) devices. For a tutorial on how the app works, visit www.waytopark.com.
Park within area time limits
Public parking in busy areas is limited to a maximum amount of time, which varies depending on the location. Watch for signs! These limits ensure parking space is continuously made available in high-traffic areas.
If you have reached the maximum limit but need more time in an area, move your vehicle to another block face, e.g. around the corner or across the street. Any time left on your paid session will still be valid in your new location.
Residential parking time limits
Vehicles may be parked on any city street for up to 36 hours, except as otherwise indicated by a sign or provided for in the Traffic Bylaw. Vehicles displaying a parking permit, such as a Residential Parking Permit or Disability Permit, must observe the 36 hour time limit as well.
