Annual Winter Route Parking Ban Begins Today January 16

This is a friendly reminder that no parking on designated streets daily between 2 a.m. and 7 a.m. The ban will start at 2 a.m. today, Tuesday, January 16, 2024 and be in place until further notice.


Once the ban begins, parking is prohibited overnight (from 2 a.m. to 7 a.m.) on designated streets.


We encourage Winnipeggers to look out for both “Winter Route” and “Snow Route” signs before parking.


People can find out if the ban applies to any address or location by:


·         Downloading the Know Your Zone app 

·         Using the online address lookup tool 

·         Contacting 311


Remember that the ban is not weather-event dependent. You cannot park on designated routes during designated hours every day starting January 16. This includes times it is not snowing and even if a street looks to have been recently cleared.


Winter routes are major thoroughfares and are used often by emergency vehicles. This makes them priority routes for snow clearing and ice control activities all winter long. Crews can do a more effective and efficient job if major routes are clear of vehicles overnight. 


PLEASE NOTE: Vehicles parked in violation of the ban may receive a $100 ticket ($75 if paid early). They may also be towed to the towing company’s compound.
