Park & Ride safety

Park & Ride lots are well-lit, equipped with emergency callboxes, and have live monitoring via closed-circuit cameras. Special Constables patrol Park & Ride lots regularly, ensuring a visible security presence.

General rules

  • Only park in designated parking spaces. Lanes need to be clear for safe passage of vehicles, especially emergency vehicles.
  • Obey all rules and regulatory signs.
  • Don’t park in prohibited areas, non-designated parking or reserved parking areas unless you have the right to do so, for example, permit-parking areas, handicap parking or temporary drop off/pick up zones.

If your vehicle is parked where it shouldn’t, it may be ticketed and/or towed at your expense.

Security tips

Lock your vehicle, turn off your lights, roll up windows, and remove valuables or store them out of sight when you Park & Ride. Important: Check it out before you re-enter your vehicle!

Look for the yellow emergency call boxes installed in every Park & Ride lot. They will connect you directly with our Security Control Centre if you’re in trouble.

Keep valuables out of sight, preferably locked in the trunk.

Don’t hide spare keys in your vehicle; keep vehicle and house keys on separate rings.

Keep to well-lit areas and be aware of your surroundings.

Don’t hesitate to report suspicious persons near your vehicle or in the lot. Do not approach them. Use the emergency call box to report the situation.

If your vehicle has been vandalized; missing or if you have security concerns, use a yellow emergency callbox or call 613-741-2478.
