Park Like a Pro

Parking can be hard, but where you can park should be easy. Take a look below for a breakdown of where you can park for free and where you can’t park in either our Vancouver or Victoria Home Zones. Make sure you remember that you are still required to obey all the usual signage, restrictions, and by-laws. Members are also on the hook for any tickets or tows if parked illegally during stopovers, or when ending trips in any non-designated or approved Evo spots.

If you are unsure of where to park, feel free to give us a call and we can help clarify.

Parking at the airport

Yes, there is a satellite Home Zone in Park’N Fly at Vancouver International Airport (YVR) You can end your trip there and park for free. Here’s how it works:

You can drop off your Evo at Park’N Fly by entering through the main entrance. Simply end your trip using your Evo App or Membership card and leave your Evo with a parking attendant to valet park. Make sure to note your licence plate number, then head inside the Park’N Fly building and register your Evo. You can wait inside for the shuttle bus to take you to the main terminal. Shuttles depart for the terminal every 7-10 minutes and drop off at level 3 only.

When picking up a car from Park’N Fly, we always recommend that you check for available cars and reserve your Evo before hopping on the shuttle bus. This just ensures a car is available for you when you need it. Shuttles back to the Park’N Fly lots must be arranged by calling 604-270-9395 until automatic service resumes. Shuttle pick up for all passengers is on Level 3 only. Note that you will need to go up a level from arrivals to access the shuttle. Just let the shuttle driver know you are an Evo Member picking up a car at the Park’N Fly office. Once you arrive, just show your Evo Membership card at the checkout counter, you will receive an exit pass and be directed to where the vehicles are parked so you can exit the lot. Start your trip as usual and hit the road!

 

Parking at satellite locations

We have satellite parking locations – designated parking areas where you can start and end your Evo trip – at Park’N Fly at YVR Airport, Grouse Mountain, Park Royal (P5), Metrotown (roof parking off of Central Blvd) and University campuses such as UBC, SFU, BCIT, Capilano University, University of Victoria, and Camosun College Lansdowne Campus. Parking at UBC is only allowed in Evo reserved locations. If you park Evo in non-reserved parking spots or lots, just make sure to pay for parking otherwise you may get a ticket or a tow. Check out the app to view the locations and descriptions of lots around UBC.

You can find reserved parking locations on the App and are able to use designated overflow lots when reserved parking locations are full. Parking outside designated overflow lots is not permitted.

 

Tandem Parking

Our lot on Expo Blvd (603 Expo Blvd), near Costco and the Stadium Skytrain Station, is our only location that allows tandem parking, which is when two cars are able to park right behind one another in a single spot. When parking in a space that allows two Evo cars, make sure you pull all the way up to the sign post to allow other Members to park behind you.

If you have reserved a car that is blocked in by another Evo, we recommend you cancel your current reservation and take another Evo from the spot if it’s available.
