City of Fredericton suspends parking fees in response to COVID-19

As New Brunswick has declared a state of emergency and operations are reduced to essential services, the City of Fredericton is suspending parking fees at metered parking spaces, parking garages and parking lots effective immediately.

"This is a difficult time for everyone,” said Meredith Gilbert, Manager of Transit and Parking for the City of Fredericton. “This step will help essential workers as they respond to COVID-19 by giving them one less thing to be concerned about. Everyone else should help by staying home.” 

The City of Fredericton MEMO (Municipal Emergency Measures Operations) is actively monitoring the COVID-19 (coronavirus) situation and taking appropriate actions to protect the public and staff, while continuing to deliver essential services. The City is following the advice and recommendations of the Office of the Chief Medical Officer of New Brunswick and the Public Health Agency of Canada. 

The decision to suspend parking fees follows a decision to cease collecting Transit fares and close all municipal buildings that provide non-essential services.

The City has suspended pre-authorized payments on monthly parking passes for the month of April. As parking remains available, however, there will not be refunds on parking passes for the month of March.
