from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday to

Sundays and statutory holidays,
but on Saturdays, the time limit
is enforced. If you are going to be
parked longer than two hours,
consider a parking lot or parkade.
You must park within two metres
(six feet) of the meter. If a meter is

the vehicle and those inside it from

some Regina neighbourhoods to
balance the needs of all parkers.

by non-resident parkers.
Unless it is being actively loaded or
unloaded and is not blocking traffic,
no vehicle can park in an alley.
Commercial delivery companies can
receive a permit allowing delivery
vehicles to park for up to ten
minutes in an alley from the City's

City transit buses and emergency
vehicles. Do not drive in a bus
