This is what the future of parking lots could look like in Toronto
It's no secret that parking on any Toronto street can be a hassle. From constantly full lots, to ever-increasing prices, to awkward spaces, trying to park across the city is enough to give you a headache.
However, the future doesn't look too bleak for drivers in the city, because the Toronto Parking Authority is reimagining their business model to support a more sustainable future, and this includes reconceptualizing parking lots in the city.
In their 2023 Annual Operation Plan, the Toronto Parking Authority included an image of a future re-imagined parking lot.
The modern lot paints a picture of what parking could potentially look like in Toronto in the future, and includes lots of innovative characteristics including:

The futuristic parking lot more so resembles a multi-modal mobility hub, with lots of points of interests to unite a whole community.
Although there's no official date for when any of these innovative parking lots may appear, they're definitely a refreshing take from the current parking situation in Toronto.
