If you're planning on having a long shopping spree at Metrotown today, watch where you park

Most of the above-ground parking will only be free for two hours, not four, from around the Bay to Chapters

BURNABY (NEWS 1130) — There’s more money coming out of your pocket if you plan on a lengthy shopping spree at Metrotown.

Most above-ground parking spots aren’t free for four hours anymore. You’ll now be charged for parking longer than two hours in spots around Nelson Avenue and Kingsway, and you have to enter your license plate into a Westpark kiosk to get that parking for free.

The underground parkade is still free for four hours, so is parking east of around Sussex Avenue.

According to a tweet by Metropolis at Metrotown, the mall doesn’t own those lots — it’s owned by Concord Pacific, and managed by WestPark
