Dear Colleagues,

This is my first Straight Talk as Interim President & CEO.  Parking rate increases have been the subject of discussion since we announced the new rates and we have taken the comments and advice into account.  Below you will find the rates which will be implemented on September 1 and I would like to thank everyone for their thoughts and advice.

As many of you recognized, the rates in the downtown core were set to mirror those around the hospitals and this change will help us manage the demand on our parking which is very high because our rates are lower than surrounding parking lots.  We have also recognized that there is plenty of parking available on evenings and weekends at the downtown lots so we have made changes to evening and weekend rates – for staff and visitors.  And, at Lyndhurst, Rumsey, Bickle and Lakeside, the TTC service available is very limited at all times, so we have made some adjustments in rates there as well.

I know that any increase is unpopular but we have heard you and made some adjustments that will help staff and visitors.  The changes recognize that the biggest pressure on our parking comes during the weekdays and pressure is not as high on evenings and weekends.    Below are the rates which will come in to effect on September 1st.

  • Weekday Day Rate - $16 at TG/TW lots (available between 8:00 am and 6:00 pm for staff)
  • Evening and Weekend Rate -- $6 at TG/TW lots (available between 6 pm and 8 am for staff and visitors)
  • TG/TW/PM/UC – Monthly transponder rate - $180
  • Dual Transponder for TG/TW - $230
  • Weekday Day Rate at LC/RC/BC – $10 (available between 8:00 am and 6:00 pm for staff and visitors)
  • Evening and Weekend Rate at LC/RC/BC -- $6 (for staff and visitors)
  • Monthly Rate at LC/RC/BC - $70 ​( for staff and visitors)

In addition to these adjustments, beginning September 1, the shuttle will run every 15 minutes from 6:00 am until 8:00 pm between Toronto General Hospital and Toronto Western Hospital.  We have made this change to assist people who wish to take the subway downtown and then shuttle to TWH, as well as to facilitate morning and afternoon meetings between the two sites.​
