Parking and Parking Rates Around VRIC 2013
If you’re planning on driving to the VRIC, the rates can get fairly steep. Parking meter rates in the area will run about $6 per hour even on the weekends, so unless you’re planning on dashing in and out, chances are that you’re going to need to find a parking garage. Of course, knowing how much walking you’re going to be doing in the conference you probably don’t want to add to your trek. We tracked down some nifty options for parking around the conference that can help keep more of your money in your pocket.
For reference, if you want to park in the convention centre, the rate is $29 for the full day. On the Sunday, we found an Easy Park underground lot that was 3 minutes walk away and $7 flat for the entire day at 900 West Cordova Street. For day 2, you can expect to pay more for your parking, however there are some options to save some money.
First, the same parking garage rate for all day parking on the Monday is $18.50 as long as you’re out by 6PM (after which point an additional $7 will be charged). Another option which is a little further away is the parking garage at 550 Hornby street which is about an 8 minute walk and will cost $15. If you’re going to carpool, then you can actually take advantage of a carpool discount of 25% off the daily maximum rate at another nearby garage (EasyPark) at 535 Hornby street. Just make sure you ask the cashier for the discount and the total should come out to about $17.25.
