Fall 2017 NADC School about to start. Where to park ?

The City of Prince George has dramatically changed the rules for parking downtown. Please familiarize yourself with them. Basically you can only park on the street for a maximum of three hours during the day. Moving your vehicle from one area to another doesn’t reset that counter. If you park say at 9 am and then come out at noon and move your vehicle somewhere and then return to the Ramada at 1 pm for the afternoon classes you will get a ticket. Please park in off street parking lots. The closets one is the city ran facility at 5th and George area . This is the same building where the Karahi King restaurant is located. Bring change for the parking meters.

If you are staying at the Ramada Hotel please use their valet service to have your vehicle parked.

Parking regulations for downtown Prince George have changed. Pay attention to the rules

The city of Prince George has a new parking system that you may not be familiar with. 

  1. You can only park for a total of 3 hours in the downtown core, on street. That doesn’t reset if you move the vehicle.
  2. If you need to park for more than 3 hours you need to park in one of the city parking lots or a private parking lot.
  3. What most people will do is park in the City of PG parkade that is adjacent to the Ramada and where guests staying at the Ramada would be parking.
  4. Do not park behind the Wood Inovation Design Centre as that is a private parking lot that doesn’t offer hourly parking. There is a parking lot to the north of the area behind the WIDC, that you can pay for hourly parking.

The City of Prince George has a website that explains parking. . Note many of the links do not work on the web page, other information is dramatically out of date or or out right wrong. Basically it comes down to you get 3 hours free. Doesn’t reset if you move the car to anywhere else in the downtown core and best to pay for off-street parking.
