Parking & Public Transit

2023 Parking Rate Changes

A new parking rate structure has been put into effect with the passing of the 2023 Town Budget. The information on this page will be updated to reflect these changes in the coming weeks.

Parking Passes

Resident Parking Passes

All residents of the Town of The Blue Mountains are permitted to park for free at all paid parking locations owned by the Town by either registering their licence plate or by displaying the printed resident pass in their rearview mirror. Town parking passes do not permit residents to park in privately owned paid parking lots. Printed resident passes are mailed to all taxpayers each spring.

Non-Resident Parking Passes

Non-Resident Parking Passes are available to residents of the Municipality of Meaford, Grey Highlands, Clearview Township and the Town of Collingwood. The cost is $100 +HST to register licence plates for the current year. License plates must be re-registered each year.

Registering Your Licence Plate(s)

Licence plate(s) can be registered by visiting Town Hall with photo identification, proof of residency and vehicle registration. License plates must be re-registered each year.

Municipal Parking Lots

To better manage public parking throughout the community, the Town has implemented a paid parking program. All paid parking locations are clearly identified by signage. There are also free public parking lots throughout the community. 

The paid parking system uses the HonkMobile app which provides the ability to pay for parking online. 

To pay for parking, scan the QR code on the Paid Parking signs located throughout the parking lots to access the HonkMobile app. If you cannot access the app, please call (519) 599-3131 ext. 9001 to make a payment.

Parking Tickets and Enforcement

The Town enforces its parking by-laws by issuing tickets to illegally parked vehicles on both public and private property. This type of enforcement is required to maintain legal parking, regulate traffic movement, and ensure public safety.
