As part of its continued initiative to upgrade the City’s main car parks, the City of Hamilton is pleased to advise that City Hall Car Park has completed testing and has moved to a one-ticket system. The system will be fully functional for Monday, October 16th. Motorists are advised that the ticket collected upon entry is the same ticket to be scanned for payment, validated and then used for exit.

City Hall Car Park will continue to be a short-term lot at a rate of $2 per hour for up to three hours. Premium rates will apply to those motorists who park for more than three hours. All fees are clearly posted in the lot. Lost tickets will incur a fee of $75.00.

Traffic Manager, Fred Richardson, commented, “We had a pretty seamless transition to the one-ticket system in No.1 Car Park and are hoping the same for City Hall Car Park. My team and I will be readily available and in the area on Monday to ensure the system is working as it should. We will be there to answer any questions and help those who may need assistance.”

The City reminds the public that monthly permits can be purchased from the City for those commuters parking on a daily basis in the long-term car parks – Bull’s Head, Par-la-Ville and Elliott Street. The cost of the Bull’s Head permit is $100 and the Par-la-Ville permit is $400 and grants access to all three long-term lots. Permit holders are issued a swipe card for entry and exit instead of visiting the pay stations. Cavendish and King Street Car Parks will also be included in the Par-la-Ville permit once their barrier systems are installed. There is a portal on the City’s website at where the public can apply directly online for the permits.
