New for 2022: The Annual Snow Route Parking Ban has changed. It still limits overnight parking on designated routes when in effect, but with some important differences. We’ve outlined the changes below.
|Name||Annual Winter Route Parking Ban||Annual Snow Route Parking Ban|
|Start date||Any time on or after November 1 based on weather conditions||Annually on December 1|
|End date||The ban will be lifted in the spring when it is no longer needed operationally, though it can remain in place until the end of April if required||Annually on the last day of February|
|How you knew/will know it’s happening||We will provide seven days’ notice of the ban coming into effect via our website, a news release, and push notifications from the Know Your Zone App.
We will also place informational flyers on the windshields of vehicles parked on designated routes with the highest overnight parking utilization prior to the ban going into effect.
|The ban started and ended on the same dates every winter|
|What it meant/means||No parking between 2 a.m. and 7 a.m. daily on streets designated as Winter Routes, which are marked with either SNOW ROUTE or WINTER ROUTE signs||No parking between 2 a.m. and 7 a.m. daily on streets designated as snow routes, which are all marked with SNOW ROUTE signs or WINTER ROUTE signs|
The Annual Winter Route Parking Ban will begin when weather conditions require it.
It can come into effect at any point from November 1 to the end of April. The declaration will be made and notice provided to Winnipeggers seven days in advance of the ban beginning.
Once the ban is in effect, vehicles cannot park on a designated winter route between 2 a.m. and 7 a.m. As we work to update current signage, winter routes will be marked by one of two signs: WINTER ROUTE or SNOW ROUTE. Both mean the same thing: once the ban is in effect, do not park between 2 a.m. and 7 a.m. or risk a ticket and tow.
