On the Road: Commercial Parking Permits
In the City of Vancouver and City of Victoria, commercial loading zones allow vehicles to stop for up to 30 minutes to load or unload materials. Previously, our parking permits didn’t include these zones but thanks to our Operations Director, Kelvin, we’ve added these permits to our fleet!
Modo’s Commercial Parking Permits
All our cargo vans and pick-up trucks in Vancouver and Victoria now have a commercial parking permit which means if you’re making a delivery for work, or moving into a new home, you can take advantage of these convenient spaces. According to the City of Vancouver, licensed commercials vehicles can:
- Stop in commercial loading zones and lanes for up to 30 minutes to load or unload materials
- Stop in passenger zones for up to 30 minutes (until 12noon only) to load or unload materials
- Use a metered space for free on any day up to 10:30am, excluding 7:00am to 9:30am rush hour zones
But remember, all drivers, whether in commercial vehicles or not, must obey No Stopping and No Parking signs, and other rules on leaving clearances at corners, lane intersections, and driveways.
