Changes to municipal on-street parking in the Queen's vicinity

Effective May 1, the City of Kingston will add time-of-day parking restrictions to residential streets in the Queen’s and Kingston General Hospital vicinity. The on-street program has two components:

  • The first component involves adding time-of-day restrictions to restrict parking for a period of time in the morning and afternoon (such as no parking between 9 a.m. and 10 a.m. and between 2 p.m. and 3 p.m., Monday to Friday) to restrict all-day parkers.
  • The second component of the program involves issuing a limited number of permits, including resident and commuter permits, that exempt parkers from these restrictions.

For more information about the parking changes, visit the City of Kingston’s website.

Other options available include Kingston Transit, which offers express service every 15 minutes during peak hours. Explore public transit route options by using the Google Transit trip planner found at: www.kingstontransit.ca/tripplanner.

Employees of Queen’s can get a discounted monthly transit pass for as little as $53 a month.  (A savings of $19 over the regular cost.)For added convenience, these passes can be paid for and renewed monthly through payroll deduction. You can sign up for the discounted pass at the Parking Office in the Rideau Building.

The Queen’s parking department also offers monthly parking options for campus parking lots to employees. For more information see www.queensu.ca/parking.
