Here are some cheap parking at Vancouver’s City Hall area otherwise known as Broadway and Cambie.
This area just up (South) from downtown Vancouver is one of Vancouver’s busiest arteries where city hall resides along with a variety of professional services and popular eateries. It is also where Broadway-City Hall Canada Line Station is located which means several may choose to park in the area and catch the Canada Line Downtown or Richmond, BC instead of finding parking in a crowded and expensive downtown or driving all the way to Richmond. (Save yourself the frustration of Asian drivers – as an Asian, I think that qualifies me to say so. Lol)
Vancouver Parking Tip – Save the hassle of finding parking in downtown Vancouver and driving in the congested city centre by parking at Vancouver City Hall area (free or cheap parking in the area) and then taking the Canada Line to Downtown Vancouver.
