When you come to the Oak Street Campus, simply park your car and remember the stall number. Go to the nearest parking meter located at building entrances, enter your stall number and pay. Parking meters accept cash (exact change only) or credit cards. You do not need to display your receipt on your dashboard.
Parking rates remain the same as they were under the old system:
- $3.50 per hour
- $14.25 per day (24 hours)
- $63.75 per week
- $103.25 per month
All of these options can be paid at any parking meter.
If your visit is running longer than you thought, and you haven’t paid for enough time, find the nearest meter and re-enter your stall number to pay for more parking time.
If you have to leave and return to the hospital, park in any stall and display the receipt you received earlier on your dashboard face up. The receipt will show parking payment when displayed on your dashboard, even if you are now parked in a different stall.
Keep an eye out for Parking Ambassadors who will be roaming the parking lots Monday to Friday, ready to lend a hand if you need. Or, if you’d rather not deal with any of the hassles of parking your own car, take advantage of the free valet service offered Monday to Friday, 10am to 4pm, at the Main Entrance to BC Children’s Hospital and let the Parking Assistant park your car (regular hourly parking rates apply).
