Uxbridge, the Trail Capital of Canada, has implemented permit parking at trailheads along Concession 6 and 7 south of Goodwood Road (Regional Road 21).
Permit parking is being introduced to fund future improvements to the trail system and maintain the trails and parking areas, said a township announcement.
Ajax and Pickering have paid visitor parking along their waterfronts.
The Uxbridge system uses cellular mobile technology to register vehicles at each lot and enable payment.
Permits cost $6 per day, or $75 annually. Residents of the Township of Uxbridge can obtain a free ‘Resident Permit Parking Card’ by registering for a permit.
Non-residents (visitors) will scan the on-site QR codes to register their vehicle and pay for parking. Uxbridge residents can park at no charge but must first sign up for a resident permit card using the 4pay app. At each visit residents will be required to activate their card and scan the onsite QR code to register their vehicle and validate their parking.
On-site signage is posted throughout the lots to help individuals begin the permit registration process. For those wanting additional support, residents are encouraged to attend one of several Town Hall registration sessions:
- Aug 2, 4-6pm
- Aug 8, 4-6pm
All sessions will be held in Council Chambers at Town Hall (51 Toronto Street South).
On-site ambassadors will be available at various times throughout the implementation to aid with registration in person at various trailheads.
